“The Invisible War”

From Oscar-and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick comes a groundbreaking documentary about the prevalence of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem with several themes: the lack of recourse to an impartial justice system, reprisals against survivors instead of against perpetrators, the absence of adequate emotional and physical care for survivors, the unhindered advancement of perpetrators’ careers, and the forced expulsion of survivors from service. The film exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported stories of our generation. 93 minutes. This film screening is co-sponsored by EWU Women’s Studies Center and EWU Army ROTC Program and will be followed by a panel discussion.
