*The Invisible War* screening and discussion Monday 11/5 @ 5 p.m.

Invisible War
The Invisible War will screen Nov. 5 at 5 p.m. in McLaren 252.

Please join us on Nov. 5 at 5 p.m. when the USF’s Women & Violence Research Group, in collaboration with the Gender and Sexualities Center and Gleeson Library, presents a screening and discussion of The Invisible War, followed by a panel discussion with veterans, community organizers, and academics.

From Oscar®- and Emmy®-nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick comes The Invisible War, a groundbreaking investigative documentary about the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem– today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were 19,000 violent sex crimes in the military in 2010. The Invisible War exposes the epidemic and breaks open one of the most under-reported stories of the decade, to the nation and the world.

This event is co-sponsored by Comparative Literature & Culture, Gender & Sexualities Studies; B.A. and M.A. in International Studies; Legal Studies; Media Studies; Peace and Justice Studies; Politics; and Sociology.
