Storyline

From the makers of The Invisible War (2012) comes a startling exposé of rape crimes on U.S. college campuses, their institutional cover-ups and the devastating toll they take on students and their families. Weaving together verité footage and first-person testimonies, the film follows the lives of several undergraduate assault survivors as they attempt to pursue - despite incredible push back, harassment, and traumatic aftermath - both their education and justice.

Statistics are CORRECT
10 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/1-in-5- college-study-raped_n_7293068.html

I've read 40-50 reviews that state the statistics in this documentary are wrong. Please go to the link I provided above. Huffington Post released an article a few weeks after Hunting Grounds premiered stating the statistics were "inflate". Well, a few months later they had to do this follow up article because low and behold, the statistics WERE (& are) CORRECT. Im glad this documentary is getting people to talk about rape & sexual assault. I was raped by my brothers best friend when I was 13 & he was 18. When i reported it to the police their first question was "What did you do to turn him on?"...Sadly, I am now 28 & if I was to ever get raped again I wouldn't report it. The police treating me like it was my fault was like getting raped all over again. I wouldn't wish that upon my worst enemy... The police wouldn't even talk about charging him with statutory rape, like I said I was 13 years old and he was 2 weeks away from his 19th birthday, so even if I had been okay and wanted to have sex I wasn't old enough to consent. Legally it was rape no matter what. IM SO GLAD, this doc sheds light on a problem that desperately needs to be fixed.
