“The Hunting Ground” is the groundbreaking, award winning CNN documentary about sexual assault on college campuses.
The purpose of today’s viewing is to decide whether or not our branch of AAUW will put on some kind of 2017 community event related to the issues surrounding sexual assault on college campuses.
In its introduction to the video CNN writes:
“In 1988, a woman was raped on campus during a time when there was no social media and no way for survivors to connect with each other. She returns for the first time to the place where she felt — and was — so very alone. And where her life’s trajectory was forever altered”.
According to the writers 100,00 college students will be
sexually assaulted next year if nothing is done.
