NO! The Rape Documentary by Aishah Shahidah Simmons

About "NO! The Rape Documentary"

"One out of three women in the United States will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime.

Produced and Directed over a period of eleven years, seven of which were full time, by Aishah Shahidah Simmons, an incest and rape survivor, this groundbreaking feature length documentary features riveting testimonials from Black women rape survivor stories who defy victimization.

Violence prevention advocates, theologians, sociologists, historians, anthropologists, and other leading scholars and human rights activists provide an interdisciplinary context with which to examine sexual violence in African-American communities. They also explore how rape is used as a weapon of homophobia."

Thanks for making this, Aishah.
