Pittsburgh friends, please join us for a screening of Audrie & Daisy, a new documentary that examines the ripple effects when two underage women find out that sexual assault crimes against them have been caught on camera.
The case at the centerpiece of the film made headlines in 2013, when the Kansas City Star published a long investigative report on the allegations of sexual assault and subsequent legal and social fallout in a small Missouri town. The story begins at the scene of a burned-down house, a year and a half after Daisy Coleman, then 14 years old, was discovered nearly unconscious, lying on the front lawn in 22-degree weather.
The screening will be at 7PM on Thursday, November 10 at the University of Pittsburgh, Crawford Hall, Room 169, at Fifth & Ruskin Avenues. A panel discussion will follow.
The event is free, but please RSVP.
Audrie & Daisy is co-sponsored by Southwest PA Says NO MORE, FISA Foundation, Heinz Endowments, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Action Against Rape, Women’s Law Project, PCHE, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, Carlow University, Carnegie Mellon University, Robert Morris University, Point Park University and La Roche College.
The Women’s Law Project is the only public interest law center in Pennsylvania devoted to advancing the rights of women and girls.
