it happened here
"I admire these strong, beautiful and courageous women for coming forward and joining movements to end sexual assault and violence worldwide and on campus!"
"The more women that stand up and speak of their experience the closer we move to a society where women will have less to fear. Even though I do not live in the USA, nor do I have children, I truly appreciate everything that these brave women have done."
"This documentary helped me so much to know I have rights and there are things I can do to make sure the same thing not only does not happen to other girls but gives better resources to girls who have been blamed for the crimes they have suffered."
IT HAPPENED HERE, a compelling new documentary from director Lisa F. Jackson and producer Marjorie Schwartz Nielsen, explores sexual assault on campuses through the personal testimonials of five survivors who transform their experiences into a springboard for change.
In raw and intimate interviews, the students describe surviving sexual assault only to be met with apathy, disbelief, blame and retaliation from the authorities when they tried to report the crime. When they tried to get justice, they were ignored, belittled and shamed, while their attackers remained on campus with impunity. But instead of hiding away in shame, they chose to speak out, and found a way to force institutional change.
