"Impassioned and inspiring..."
- LA Times
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. It is estimated that 25% of undergraduate women are sexually assaulted while in college. This startling statistic and many similar to it, are evidence for how important it is to raise awareness and inspire advocacy for women on college campuses and communities across the nation.

Emmy nominated  BRAVE MISS WORLD is a call for justice and a startlingly honest portrayal of how personal tragedy can be transformed into a global awareness campaign against sexual violence. In 1998, Linor Abargil was stabbed and raped while working as a model in Milan. Over the course of five years, director Cecilia Peck (Shut Up & Sing) follows Abargil, on a mission to confront the trauma of her past. She travels from rape crisis centers, to American college campuses and the townships of South Africa to inspire others to confront shame and to heal.  

This special educational version (60 min), is specifically designed for student audiences. Also included are exclusive bonus scenes, a report by Gloria Allred on a previously unpublished campus rape investigation, survivor testimonials and filmmaker interviews.
