Any friends out there wanna try this out? I could mail it to you when I finished!
My name is Nancy Schwartzman, I’m a filmmaker, an activist and a survivor. I made a film about consent – called The Line – about my own sexual assault, and my decision to confront my perpetrator with a hidden camera. I have shown this film and led discussions around the world – at film festivals, on college campuses, and to people in the government and in the military. Sergeants, Lieutenants and Police Officers have come to my screenings. Some of them want to know why I didn’t report my rape, why I didn’t use the system, why instead, I confronted my perpetrator with a hidden camera, and created The Line Campaign to educate and prevent rape.
If you’re wondering why women hesitate to report a rape or a sexual assault to the police, and why a victim wouldn’t trust the justice system: look no further than the acquittal of NYPD officers Moreno and Mata.
