 "Sofia Brewer-Berres, a graduate of the M.A. program in Women's and Gender Studies, created a documentary film entitled "Normalization of Rape Culture in Popular Film" for her final project.  The documentary analyzes how rape culture is perpetuated through blockbuster films, even when there are no explicit rape scenes.  In addition to interviews with gender and film scholars, the documentary includes discussion questions that allow for use within the classroom, in order to push students to think about the broader connections between gender formations and rape culture, especially within popular media.  This documentary can be utilized in intro-level Women's and Gender Studies, Media Studies, Sexuality Studies, or Film Studies courses, as well as in higher-level WGST courses that focus on either film or sexual and gendered violence or in higher-level Film or Media Studies courses with a focus on gender.  In order to use this film in your class, contact the filmmaker at sbrewerb@gmail.com."
