Film Screening and Panel Discussion on Sexual Violence


A panel discussion and film screening on the topic of sexual violence will be open to all IE Program students, English Department students, and Aogaku students in general. First, the documentary film, “Japan’s Secret Shame,” will be shown. That will be followed by a panel discussion that will explore themes outlined in the film, including the challenges of reporting and seeking justice around sexual violence in Japan. Ms. Vickie Skorji of TELL will moderate the panel discussion.
