Sunday, May 19 5 -7 pm 
*How did the oppression of women begin?
*What is the real source of women's   oppression? 
*How can we create a world without rape?
*How does women's oppression relate to the other horrors of this imperialist system?
This chapter is part of the film BA Speaks: Revolution Nothing Less! which is a recent talk by Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, where these and other questions are addressed. Come watch the film and be a part of this exciting discussion afterward. The entire film is being show chapter by chapter every Sunday night at Revolution Books.

After the discussion members of the initiative to Stop Patriarchy: End Pornography and the Enslavement of Women will be available to discuss the upcoming Summer Offensive to stand up for abortion on demand without apology and challenge the current epidemic of rape culture.

Thursday May 23, 7 pm Film Screening  
Academy Award Nominee  -
Best Documentary Feature
An investigative and powerfully emotional documentary about the epidemic of rape of soldiers within the US military, the institutions that perpetuate and cover up its existence, and its profound personal and social consequences

While the Department of Defense claims to have a "Zero Tolerance Policy," the numbers of sexual assault occurrences within the U.S. military have continued to rise.
  • Since 2006, more than 95,000 service members have been sexually assaulted in the U.S. military
  • More than 86% of service members do not report their assault
  • Less than five percent of all sexual assaults are put forward for prosecution, and less than a third of those cases result in imprisonment
Stay for a informal discussion
