With Impunity

April 16-17
With Impunity: Men and Gender Violence (United States, 2012, 57 minutes)
Presented in partnership with A Woman’s Place.

*A Woman's Place will be holding a round-table discussion after both 7 pm showings*

Originally broadcast on Public Television, With Impunity received great acclaim, an Emmy nomination, and producers Ellen Pence and Michael Paymar were awarded the 2012 Changemakers Award by the Minnesota Women’s Press. The film is an examination of cultural realities, our past, and our options for ending men’s violence against women.  Through this program, viewers learn how beliefs about manhood that allow men to exploit and hurt women with impunity are ingrained in our culture. More than just anecdotal stories, With Impunity engages the thinking of leading historians, sociologists, and practitioners to examine an important subject that needs to be discussed.
