The Hunting Ground
The statistics are staggering. One in five women in college are sexually assaulted, yet only a fraction of these crimes are reported, and even fewer result in punishment for the perpetrators. From the intrepid team behind The Invisible War comes The Hunting Ground, a piercing, monumental exposé of rape culture on campuses, poised to light a fire under a national debate.
In a tour de force of verité footage, expert insights, and first-person testimonies, the film follows undergraduate rape survivors pursuing both their education and justice, despite ongoing harassment and the devastating toll on them and their families. Since the film’s premiere at Sundance, it had been screened at the White House and hundreds of college campuses across the country. The documentary has inspired new laws in New York and California and changes in campus policies.
In October 2017, Peace is Loud joined forces with The Hunting Ground for a new impact campaign to stand against proposed rollbacks to campus sexual assault guidelines and amplify the voices of survivors saying, “#MeToo.” We invite you to join us in breaking the silence, supporting survivors, and dismantling rape culture.
