FACES OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

"Telling Amy’s Story” 

Hosted by actress and advocate Mariska Hargitay, and told by Detective Deirdri Fishel, Telling Amy’s Story follows the timeline of a domestic violence homicide that occurred on November 8, 2001.  While the film cannot change the outcome of Amy’s story, it does raise awareness about the issue of sexual and domestic violence which, it is hoped, will contribute to ending it.

Thursday, October 8 @ 11:00 – 12:30 in Cade 219

"Inside Her Sex”

While we live in a highly sexualized society, the cultural messages women receive about female sexuality is distorted and rife with shame. What women should look like, who women should want, what women should desire...in fact, who women should be, is dictated to us from screens and pages and people. This thought-provoking documentary explores female sexuality and shame through the eyes and experiences of three women from different walks of life, each brave enough to chart her own course of sexual discovery.

Monday, November 9 @ 10:00 – 11:30 in HUM 112
