Schaible Auditorium, Bunnell Building, UAF

This film speaks to one of the most critical issues of our times. Former Miss Israel and Miss World, Linor Abargil, was the victim of a violent stabbing and rape weeks before winning the Miss World crown. Brave Miss World documents Linor's fight to convict her attacker; her own struggle to heal when her serial rapist comes up for parole, her stability is shattered, and she reaches out to the rapist's previous victims to convince the parole board to keep him behind bars. Ultimately, Linor’s refusal to be silenced triumphs, as she journeys from teenage rape survivor ... to Miss World ... to speaking out as an activist and an empowered lawyer.

The UAF Women's Center recognizes the importance of facilitating conversations about sexual violence that focus on the ways in which UAF and the Fairbanks community can support survivors while promoting an end to sexual assault and violence. Join us at this BRAVE MISS WORLD film screening and join the discussion about what we can do to free UAF, Fairbanks, and the world of sexual assault and violence.
