American colleges tried to silence them, but now the rape survivors are talking

Studies show that one in five women are sexually assaulted in American colleges, but the priority of the institutions is to keep the victims quiet. In the few cases that reach the police, only 26% result in an arrest. From the director of the Oscar-nominated documentary THE INVISIBLE WAR, THE HUNTING GROUND exposes the culture that aims to silence women who have been sexually assaulted on US campuses - and the brutal toll this takes on the victims and their families.
