Union County College is offering a free screening of this powerful documentary to our students as well as interested members of the community and professionals at local agencies. Nancy Schwartzman's courageous documentary shines a light on issues of consent and female sexuality in way that we don't usually see elsewhere. Rather than asking whether or not women can or should say yes to sex, it's more a matter of how often our "no" often goes unheard or unheeded and that the question "Is it okay if we do this?" is rarely asked to begin with.
See the movie and join the conversation. Reservations are not required and anyone can attend. The movie does include some mature content that may not be appropriate for young children. Additionally, the College does not provide child care services. Please plan accordingly.
