Thank you for attending Zonta's Day of Film 2016 on March 5, 2016.
The film was The Hunting Ground, described by The New York Times as “an unblinking look at sexual assaults on campus.”
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.
The Hunting Ground reveals an endemic system of institutional cover-ups, rationalizations, victim-blaming, and denial. But two survivors take matters into their own hands and use a Title IX legal strategy to fight back.
This documentary has inspired new laws in New York and California and changes in campus policies.
