Rho Epsilon Pi go-getters, Lucy Finn ’14 and Jaxie Friedman ’15, write in about an amazing Oscar nominated documentary that will be screened on campus TONIGHT, so don’t miss out.
We will screen the incredible Academy Award Nominated film, The Invisible War, an investigative documentary about the epidemic of rape of female soldiers within the US military. Directed by Kirby Dick, the film was recently nominated for an Oscar. Following the screening, author Helen Benedict will give a talk on her research on sexual violence within the US military. Two of her books, The Lonely Soldier and Sand Queen will be sold and signed at the event as well.
Women in the US Military are more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than shot by enemy fire.
Come be a part of the conversation. Brought to you by Rho Epsilon Pi with the help of the SBC, the FGSS Department, the Center for Film Studies, Wesleyan Women in Film, and Womanist House.
Date: TONIGHT, April 18th
Time: 6:30 p.m.
