The Hunting Ground @ BSA

The Hunting Ground @ BSA

Beast Grrl Collective is excited to present The Hunting Ground and a new project, IX for Title IX, for students at Baltimore School for the Arts.  

On college campuses in the United States, every 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted at some point in their time at school. If the purpose of a documentary is to reveal an injustice or call attention to an issue facing our society, The Hunting Ground (2015), does just that. Its powerful exposé on the epidemic of rape crimes faced by colleges across the United States galvanizes its audience, as well as potential survivors into taking action and speaking out against the institutional denial of these offenses. The film follows the stories of a handful of undergraduate survivors and their cases of sexual assault, as well as the testimony from faculty, students and many of the victim's families. The impact on these students lives, as well as their families, is monumental, the response from the schools-appalling. Universities across the nation avoid the issue through the means of victim blaming, harassment and ignorance, which spurs another focus of the film. The stories of two survivors, Andrea Pino and Annie Clark, who are combating this issue by raising awareness of rape crimes on college campuses. Using title IX, they are taking matters into a legal lens and getting justice for survivors everywhere. They have developed a national network devoted to education, justice, and getting survivors to share their story. This documentary helps bring the reality of sexual assault on college campuses to the masses and raises the conversation about rape at universities across the United States to a national level.

 

IX for Title IX presents nine issues students should especially consider when selecting colleges to apply to and attend. This booklet encourages students to make college choices that take into account their safety in light of the campus sexual assault crisis.

Anti Street Harassment Day of Action

Anti Street Harassment Day of Action

Join Beast Grrl Collective and ETHIC Program for a day of activities to combat street harassment. We will chalk the sidewalk with anti-street harassment messages, then have a discussion with Leah Michaels of Hollaback! Baltimore.
This event is free! Let us know if you can make it at https://www.facebook.com/events/252747071757819/

Education Through Interaction and Compassion (ETHIC) is a program dedicated to initiating interreligious dialogue amongst high school aged girls in Baltimore. It was co-founded by Yael Hamburger and Rebecca Margolis, local high school, students in 2015. Having attended Jewish day schools for a number of years, Yael and Rebecca recognized the necessity of creating and ensuring diversity among high school students, as it is essential to education and understanding the community around us. ETHIC focuses on initiating interfaith dialogue amongst high school girls in Baltimore, and uses the bonds formed amongst the girls to impact the community around us for the greater good. As frequently as possible, they engage in community service projects throughout Baltimore. The community service aspect of ETHIC not only allows the girls to bridge the gap separating them, but also creates a spirit of unity in that we all are dedicated in making a difference. By doing so, ETHIC promotes the creation of safe spaces for discussion of both similarities and differences in order to empower young women with a better understanding of others' backgrounds and an appreciation for different perspectives.

Hollaback is a movement to end street harassment powered by a network of local activists around the world. We work together to better understand street harassment, to ignite public conversations, and to develop innovative strategies to ensure equal access to public spaces.
