The hunting ground: Questioning american's moral superiority

 The Hunting Ground, directed by Kirby Dick and produced by Amy Ziering raises questions about the American's moral superiority. American loves to claim moral superiority regarding the societal evolution of women’s rights. But this film  forces America to look inward and reckon with its own women — promising young women at the peak of their potential — feeling unprotected on what should be the safest possible ground. The directors interviews with victims of alleged incidents of rape on college campuses all over the U.S. make clear that young women’s complaints are too rarely taking seriously by college administrators. One after another, the women on camera describe being asked what they were wearing, whether they gave a positive signal to the man that may have created confusion, and if they had been drinking at the time of the incident.
