Screening and Discussion: The Hunting Ground
Thursday, October 22, 2015
Student Union West, Auditorium
View the documentary about how colleges conceal rape. The film has been described as a shameful indictment of some of the most admired institutions, including Harvard University. It paints a portrait of American colleges as dangerous for young women because of the high rate of sexual assault and the institution's virtually universal response: to blame the victims, treat rape as a public relations management problem and protect the colleges' good names and lofty reputations.
