It’s movie night with Penn State Gender Equity Center! Join us for the screening and discussion of the critically acclaimed, academy award-winning film, Promising Young Woman.

Join Cassie, played by Carey Mulligan in this dark thriller, crime film. Nothing in Cassie's life is what it appears to be -- she's wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, but she is a med school drop-out living with her parents, working in a coffee shop. Cassie’s life was significantly altered after her best friend, Nina Fisher, experiences a violent assault. In the aftermath of the violence, Nina receives no help from institutions and so-called friends and classmates, resulting in her untimely death by suicide. Cassie, heartbroken, begins living a secret double life by night to avenge Nina. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs from the past. Given the topics of sexual assault and suicide are woven throughout the film, we will have advocates on hand from Centre Safe and the Gender Equity Center if anyone needs to talk with someone or process any emotions or experiences the film brings up.
