Film: "Brave Miss World"
  • Film: "Brave Miss World"

    Event

    Linor Abargil, an Israeli beauty queen, was raped two months before being crowned Miss World.  Twelve years later, she’s ready to talk about it – and to encourage others to speak out. Now a globe-trotting victims’ advocate, Linor encourages people to stand against sexual violence by putting an end to their silence. She travels to speak with teens in South Africa, where girls are statistically more likely to be raped than educated. She visits Princeton and UC Santa Barbara, where women describe a campus culture that fails to take assaults seriously. From Cleveland’s Rape Crisis Center to Hollywood’s living rooms, Linor is met with emotional support. Yet when she attends a celebrity rape trial that hits too close to home, she suffers a breakdown. In searching for something to ease her pain, Linor turns to Orthodox Judaism.  

    Morgan Carpenter, film subject, will join us for a post-screening discussion.
