'It Was Rape' Film Screening

Tuesday, Apr 15 - 4:30PM

The "It Was Rape Project." The "It Was Rape" project seeks to create cultural space for women and men to tell the truth about a common but silenced reality: rape and sexual abuse. Via a t-shirt, a film, and a conference dissecting the "slut" slur, the "It Was Rape" project turns up the volume on resistance and resilience. The Film: 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 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.
