As part of the Cover-Ups series, join us for a screening of It Happened Here with Ada Gregory, Executive Director, Office of Interdisciplinary Program Management (former Director, Duke Women’s Center).
Through the intimate portraits of five student survivors, this documentary exposes the alarming pervasiveness of sexual assault on college campuses, the institutional cover-ups and the failure to protect students, and follows their fight for accountability and change on campus and in federal court.
Cover-Ups: Sexual abuse in the priesthood, date rape at universities, concussions among football players – Why do people protect perpetrators and justify silence? The series is hosted by the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke and co-sponsored by the Center for Documentary Studies, the DeWitt Wallace Center for Media & Democracy, and the Department of Political Science.
