AAUW Greater Columbia Presents The Invisible War

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) of Greater Columbia presents an exclusive, one-night screening of The Invisible War, an Academy award-nominated investigation into one of America’s most shameful, and best kept secrets—the epidemic of rape in the US military. The screening will be held on Thursday, February 11, at 6:30 P.M., at AMC Dutch Square 14 Theaters, 421-80 Bush River Road in Columbia.

 

Tickets are $12 and available online only at https://tugg.com/events/82482. A discussion will follow the screening.

 

Directed by multi-Oscar®- and Emmy®-nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick, the film paints a startling picture. Today, a female soldier in a combat zone is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates that a staggering 19,300 service members were sexually assaulted in 2010 alone.
