The Department of Sociology and the Sociology Club would like to invite you to a screening of The Hunting Ground

Thursday, November 19th at 3:30pm in HSH 201. Please use this link to RSVP. More information about the film is below. We hope to see you there!

The Hunting Ground 

The statistics are staggering. One in five women in college are sexually assaulted, yet only a fraction of these crimes are reported, and even fewer result in punishment for the perpetrators. From the intrepid team behind The Invisible War comes The Hunting Ground, a piercing, monumental exposé of rape culture on campuses, poised to light a fire under a national debate.

In a tour de force of verité footage, expert insights, and first-person testimonies, the film follows undergraduate rape survivors pursuing both their education and justice, despite ongoing harassment and the devastating toll on them and their families.

BSEL Lunch & Learn

Wednesday, Oct. 21st, 2015
12:30 – 2:00 pm
The Forum, TCC 450

The USC Brittingham Social Enterprise Lab invites you to our second Lunch & Learn of the fall semester, featuring Elizabeth Scharpf, the chief instigating officer at Sustainable Health Enterprises (SHE).

SHE is a social venture that has been recognized by the Harvard Business School, the New York Times’ Nick Kristof and Bill Clinton for shaking up the status quo in the international development industry by using business solutions (rather than the charity/donation-only approach) to tackle some of the world’s most pressing problems.

SHE’s first initiative is SHE28, which addresses females’ lack of access to affordable menstrual pads in Africa, Asia and South America, causing them to miss school and/or work. SHE is currently helping women roll out a franchise model in Rwanda manufacturing and distributing affordable, eco-friendly menstrual pads by sourcing local, inexpensive raw materials (e.g., banana fibers) and leveraging existing female networks.

Come and join us for this exciting event and enjoy a free lunch while you’re at it!

The event will take place Wednesday, October 21st 12:30-2:00pm in TCC 450. Free lunch will be served.
This event is cosponsored by SoGal, Marshall Global Brigades and Trojan Scholars Society.
