Resist: A Series of Films and Conversations on Social Activism

The Gender Studies and Africana Studies programs present the sixth installment in our collaborative documentary film series highlighting the power of collective activism and organized resistance. The series spotlights the strategic efforts of citizens to resist oppression and social injustice and create change across a variety of issues and time periods.

On Wednesday April 19, we will be discussing The Hunting Ground (2015). Filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering reveal an endemic system of institutional cover-ups, rationalizations, victim-blaming, and denial that creates perfect storm conditions for predators to prey with impunity. Meanwhile, the film captures mavericks Andrea Pino and Annie Clark, survivors who are taking matters into their own hands—ingeniously employing Title IX legal strategy to fight back and sharing their knowledge among a growing, unstoppable network of young women who will no longer be silent( http://thehuntinggroundfilm.com/story/).

Please join us for a viewing and discussion of The Hunting Ground

Wednesday April 19th from 4:30 to 6:30 PM in A321
