Originating Calendar Women's Resources Center
Sex and Gender Film Series. Thursdays at the Women's Resources Center, Doors open at 6:30 pm, Film at 7:00 pm. In Honor of Sexual Assault Awarenss Month. Filmmaker Kirby Dick. The Invisible War, a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of America's most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem-today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 19,000 violent sex crimes in the military in 2010. The Invisible War exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported stories of our generation, to the nation and the world.
