On April 2, 7PM in Witherspoon Student Center theater Dr. Monica Leach and Dr. Sarah Stein of NC State’s Dept of Social Work are sponsoring the on-campus screening of The Invisible War which is an Oscar-nominated 97 minute documentary on military sexual assault and trauma. The screening for the campus and public is part of a grant from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences for research on how the mainstream press has covered the phenomenon of military sexual assault and trauma. The film is a remarkably comprehensive and careful exploration of the subject. It features a number of women who were raped and what happened to them in terms of PTSD, leaving the service, and no perpetrators prosecuted. It also interviews a lot of the military top brass about what has been going on.
The film will be screened for free April 2nd, 7pm at , with refreshments served starting at 6:30pm. The following speakers will be in attendance after the screening for Q&A: Col Marilyn Brooks, head of Ft. Bragg’s Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention Program, with her staff members SFC Simmons (my Noncommissioned Officer in Charge (NCOIC)); Ms. Deanne Gerdes, Director for the Fayetteville Rape Crisis Volunteer Community Center; and Sgt Kellie Berg, Supervisor FAY PD Special Victims Unit & Cyber Crime. We will also have onstage for Q&A Jenn Scott, NC State’s Women’s Center Assistant Director for Interpersonal Violence Prevention, and 2 Clinical Practice of Social Work professors from NC State, Karen Bullock, PhD, LCSW and W. J. Casstevens, PhD, LCSW, MSW.
