OCTOBER 29 - NOVEMBER 20
Artists whose work investigates the attitudes and biases embedded in the U.S. justice system as evidenced by the sentences meted out to battered women who acted in self-defense but were convicted of murder and those of students convicted of sexual assault.
In the U.S., one-third of female murder victims are murdered by male partners, and women survive an estimated 4.8 million rapes and physical assaults each year at the hands of their husbands or boyfriends, according to the Michigan Women’s Justice and Clemency Project. Each year, the BGSU Silent Witness Unveiling reveals the deaths of girls and women in our region as a result of violence. In the vast majority of sexual assaults the perpetrators never serve time in prison—97 percent of cases, an analysis of Justice Department data by the anti-sexual violence advocacy group RAINN concluded. Recent rape cases on campuses have foregrounded this disturbing scenario, and the gender disparities in prosecution and sentencing.
