UN Women Australia, Adelaide Chapter, and The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre will be screening a ground-breaking investigative documentary about the epidemic of rape within the US military.
The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem today. A female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defence estimates there were a staggering 19,000 violent sex crimes in the military in 2010. The Invisible War exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported stories of our generation, to the nation and the world.
RSVP essential, details vie The Hawke Centre website.
The Invisible War winner of the 2102 Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival.
