Thank you for attending Zonta's Day of Film 2016 on March 5, 2016.
The film was The Hunting Ground, described by The New York Times as “an unblinking look at sexual assaults on campus.”
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.
The Hunting Ground reveals an endemic system of institutional cover-ups, rationalizations, victim-blaming, and denial. But two survivors take matters into their own hands and use a Title IX legal strategy to fight back.This documentary has inspired new laws in New York and California and changes in campus policies.
In 2011, Zonta Club of Denver was recognized with a National Philanthropy Day® award for demonstrating “outstanding commitment through financial support and the encouragement and motivation of others to take leadership roles in philanthropy and community involvement.” The award was presented at the annual National Philanthropy Day in Colorado awards luncheon, and members of the club attended the event to accept the award.
