Event Details

One of only 2 public UK screenings of the multi-award winning and Oscar nominated documentary THE INVISIBLE WAR.

THE INVISIBLE WAR is groundbreaking investigation into one of America’s most disturbing secrets: the epidemic of rape within the US military. Focusing on the powerful stories of several young veterans, the film is a moving examination of the staggering personal and societal costs of these assaults.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion which will consider sexual assault in the UK military as well as a drinks reception at the end of the evening.

The panel will be chaired by Professor Jenny Mathers, the acting head of Aberystwyth’s Department of International Politics and former editor of Minerva: Women & War journal.

She will be joined Dr Victoria Basham, who will be speaking on gender and the military as well as Dr Deirdre Macmanus whose work on trauma and violent offending was published in last month’s Lancet. A representative from Women Against Rape, an organisation that has supported service personnel in recent years will also joining the discussion.

*UPDATE* An ex-soldier from the Territorial Army will be joining the panel discussion and speaking about her experience.

All profits will be donated to the Artemis Rising Invisible War Recovery Program, a trauma recovery program for victims of sexual assault in the military.

 *AMENDMENT* Please note that after conversations with Women Against Rape regarding their work with survivors of sexual assault in the UK military we will be donating all profits to Women Against Rape in an effort to support UK personnel
