NYC SHOUT-OUT: Please join us at Quad Cinema on Sunday March 29th for a special International SWAN Day screening of Lisa F. Jackson’s important new documentary It Happened Here.
In her compelling new documentary, It Happened Here, director Lisa F. Jackson explores the issue of sexual assault on America’s college campuses by chronicling the personal testimonies of five survivors.
These brave young women describe surviving sexual assault only to be met with apathy, disbelief, blame and retaliation from the authorities – college administrators, local police departments and the courts. While trying to report the crime, while trying to get justice, they were ignored, belittled and shamed, while their attackers remained on campus with impunity.
Instead of hiding away in shame, these five terrific young women–Kylie Angell, Erica Daniels, Anglie Epifano, Carolyn Luby, and Sarah O’Brien–chose to speak out and find a way to force institutional change.
This special screening is sponsored by the Empire State Virtual Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW), in collaboration with Cinedigm and Quad Cinema.
The screening will begin at 11 AM, and it will be followed by a Q&A with student activists Kylie Angell (University of Connecticut) and Kyndall Clark (University of Pennsylvania).
The Q&A will be moderated by Jan Lisa Huttner co-founder of International SWAN Day and Director of College/University Relations for Empire State Virtual Branch AAUW.
