On Thursday October 1st, the Women’s Center and Wellness Promotion in conjunction with SAC hosted an open screening of The Hunting Ground. The documentary features real stories from across the country of the disturbing reality of college rape culture- stories that are mishandled and ignored action by administrators. From allegations of sexual misconduct stemming from college athletes to fraternities to Ivy League schools, The Hunting Ground surprises and deeply angers audiences that not enough action has happened to support the survivors, bring justice to the perpetrators, and affirm a safe environment on certain college campuses.
Though much effort has been given on many campuses across the United States, such as the Green Dot initiative here on West Chester’s campus, there is always more that can be done to ensure that students, faculty, staff, and administration across all campuses are committed to providing a safe community.
