“What Doesn’t Kill Me” Screening
October 30, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
It wasn’t until her husband attacked her in public that 86-year-old Charlotta Harrison found the strength to leave. She is one of the lucky ones: every day, three women in the US are murdered by a male partner
and 5 million children witness or are subject to domestic violence.
But for those who escape domestic violence, the story does not end. In the US, abusive fathers are seeking custody of their children in increasing numbers. And frighteningly – they are winning in the majority of cases. Rachel Meyrick’s directorial debut explores a terrifying trend occurring in courts all over America; a huge loop-hole in the family court system that is putting children in extreme danger and rendering their mothers helpless to protect them.
In this bold, provocative film, mothers, lawyers and domestic violence experts share intimate personal stories, hard-hitting facts and frank discussions about what is wrong with the system and how to fix it.
WHAT DOESN’T KILL ME exposes a national travesty compared by some to the Catholic Church scandal. In this explosive era of the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements it illustrates to perfection gender discrimination in our court systems where children are being actively separated from their protective parent.
You can watch this powerful, award-winning film on Tuesday, October 30. There will be a special screening at the Will Rogers Memorial theatre at 5:30p, presented by Safenet Services. Tickets are free; please RSVP HERE.
