It Was Rape

 "It Wasn't Bad Sex, It Wasn't a Mistake, It Wasn't My Fault - It Was Rape" is a new and very powerful film from Jennifer Baumgardner. Rape is wrong, illegal and reprehensible - and yet still tragically common. In this program eight women tell their diverse personal stories of sexual assault, from a Midwestern teenager trying alcohol for the first time, to a Native American woman gradually coming to terms with her abusive childhood. Gripping and emotional, this film is an opportunity to empathize with people - not just absorb faceless statistics - and to puncture the silence and denial that allow sexual assault to thrive. Ultimately, these stories shed light on how this epidemic affects us all.

"'It Was Rape' will change the way you think about this most terrible - and most everyday - of crimes. It's heartrending, brave and important."       Katha Pollitt, "Subject to Debate" columnist, The Nation

"'It Was Rape' boldly explores sexual violence through the experiences of survivors. This film both challenges the audience to think about sexual violence in a deeper, more nuanced way, and inspires genuine empathy for individuals impacted by violence."                                                       Sarah Dodd, Assistant director of the Sexual Assault Prevention Programs at North Dakota State University

"'It Was Rape'" is one of the best documentaries I've seen on this issue. A must-see for any classroom discussing the issue of rape"                       Kelly Finley, Lecturer, Women's and Gender Studies at University of North Carolina at Charlotte

"If (the ‘It Was Rape') project starts a conversation, it won't be a quiet one which is just what Ms Baumgardner wants."                                         Susan Dominus, New York Times
