Documentary: The Hunting Grounds

Tue., October 25, 2016 at 7:00 PM
Hosted by Campus Life, Office of Multicultural Affairs and Diversity Programs, Health and Wellness Center, First Year Seminar The statistics are staggering. One in five women in college are sexually assaulted, yet only a fraction of these crimes are reported, and even fewer result in punishment for the perpetrators. From the intrepid team behind The Invisible War comes Campus Assaults, a piercing, monumental exposé of rape culture on campuses, poised to light a fire under a national debate. Since the film’s premiere at Sundance, it had been screened at the White House and hundreds of college campuses across the country. The documentary has inspired new laws in New York and California and changes in campus policies.
