Women Studies Program: “’The Invisible War’: A Film Screening and Discussion”

FSU Presents a Screening and Discussion of “The Invisible War”

Frostburg State University’s Women Studies Program presents “’The Invisible War’: A Film Screening and Discussion” on Thursday, April 11, at 7 p.m. in the Lane University Center Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall. This event is free and open to the public.

Filmmaker Kirby Dick created “The Invisible War,” a groundbreaking investigation about one of America’s most shameful secrets: 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 a staggering 19,300 service members sexually assaulted in 2010 alone.

The film is presented in partnership with the Departments of Sociology, Philosophy, English, Theatre and Dance, Foreign Languages and Literature; Amnesty International; V-Day at FSU and the President’s Advisory Council Against Gender-Based Violence.
