This Week at Molloy

Thursday, January 29

The Partner Project's hosts a screening of the HBO documentary, A Private Violence, followed by a panel presentation. We are very fortunate to have one of the main characters, Kit Gruelle on campus for the event and discussion from  5 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. in the Madison Theater. According to the producers, A Private Violence shatters the brutality of "why doesn't she just leave". Through the eyes of two survivors - Deanna Walters, a mother who seeks justice for the crimes committed against her at the hands of her estranged husband, and Kit Gruelle, an advocate who seeks justice for all women - we bear witness to the complicated and complex realities of intimate partner violence. Their experiences challenge entrenched and misleading assumptions, providing a lens into a world that is largely invisible. We hope you will attend. The event is free and open to everyone. If you would like specific information about the event, panelists, or The Partner Project please contact me!! Please share with your friends and family - everyone is welcome.
