WI Coalition Against Sexual Assault Regional Meeting & Documentary Viewing
Thursday, September 12, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 3:30 PM (CDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
“The Invisible War,” the thought-provoking, Academy Award-nominated documentary about sexual assault in the armed forces, will be shown at Blackhawk Technical College on Sept. 12 as part of a program sponsored by the Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA).
Following the 93-minute film, a discussion featuring sexual assault victim Rachel Beauchene will be held with the audience in the BTC Triangle Room (Room 1400A). Beauchene will discuss details of her assault in 2004 as a member of the U.S. Army and how Army authorities responded and did not respond to her filed complaint against a fellow soldier.
“The Invisible War,’’ nominated in 2012 for Best Documentary, is a searing account of the growing issue of sexual assault in the U.S. military and how military authorities will cover up the problem by often flipping blame to those who were assaulted.
