Life Sciences Building auditorium


DelVal's chapter of the American Association of University Women, NOVA and the Department of Student Affairs are hosting a Sexual Assault Awareness Film Series throughout the month of April. 

The first film in the series, "Brave Miss World," follows the journey of Miss Israel Linor Abargil. At age 18 she was stabbed, abducted and raped in Italy. Just six weeks later, she had to represent her country in the Miss World competition. When  she was crowned the winner, she vowed to do something about rape. The film follows her from the rape, to her crowning and through her crusade to fight for justice and break the silence. During her travels to speak out and meet with other rape survivors, her own trauma begins to resurface. The film explores the trauma of sexual assault through one young woman’s journey from teenage rape survivor to Miss World to empowered lawyer and activist.
