Presents a Benefit Screening of

Tickets: $5.00 (available at door)
Proceeds benefit Hudson County Rape Crisis Center

What I Want My Words To Do To You offers an unprecedented look into the minds and hearts of the women inmates of New York's Bedford Hills Correctional Facility. The film goes inside a writing workshop led by playwright and activist Eve Ensler, consisting of 15 women, most of whom were convicted of murder. Through a series of exercises and discussions, the women delve into their pasts and explore the nature of their crimes and the extent of their own culpability.

Statistics about incarcerated women:
~Nationally, women prisoners are the fastest growing group in the prison population.
~The vast majority of women in prison have been victims of violence prior to their incarceration including domestic violence, rape, sexual assault and child abuse.
~Women who are violent offenders are even more likely to have been abused and to be incarcerated for responding to that abuse violently.

The Hudson County Rape Crisis Center assists survivors of sexual assault, ages 12 and above in Hudson County. 24 Hour Hotline: 201 795 5757

V Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. For up-to-date screening information and other V-Day fundraisers visit www.gaiastudio. org, www.arthouseproduct ions.org or www.vday.org. For more information on our beneficiary visit www.hcrcc.blogspot. com.
