Feminist Film Series: It Was Rape

featuring Filmmaker Jennifer Baumgardner

Date: Monday, April 8, 2013
Time: 4:00 PM
Building: Woldenberg Art Center, Freeman Auditorium
Location: uptown campus

Rape is wrong, illegal, reprehensible—and yet still tragically common. In this film, eight women tell their diverse personal stories of sexual assault, from a Midwestern teenager trying trying alcohol for the first time to a Native American woman gradually coming to terms with her abusive childhood. Gripping and emotional, this film is an opportunity to empathize with people—not just absorb faceless statistics—and to puncture the silence and denial that allow sexual assault to thrive. Ultimately, these stories shed light on how this epidemic affects us all. Following the screening, filmmaker Jennifer Baumgardner will discuss this project and her advocacy work. Praise for the film... "It Was Rape boldly explores sexual violence through the experiences of survivors. This film both challenges the audience to think about sexual violence in a deeper, more nuanced way, and inspires genuine empathy for individuals impacted by violence." —Sarah Dodd, Assistant Director of the Sexual Assault Prevention Programs at North Dakota State University "It Was Rape is one of the best documentaries I've seen on this issue. A must-see for any classroom discussing the issue of rape."—Kelly Finley, Lecturer, Women's and Gender Studies at University of North Carolina at Charlotte "If [It Was Rape] starts a conversation, it won't be a quiet one, which is just what Ms. Baumgardner wants."—Susan Dominus, New York Times
