Rape Activists Hold Vigil on Opening Night of ‘Birth of a Nation’



About 50 people, including activist organization Fvck Rape Culture and artists, filmmakers and women (and a few men) sat in silence Thursday night outside the Arclight Hollywood Cinemas to bring awareness to the millions of unnamed victims of rape and sexual assault.

Variety was able to talk to FRC (which was founded to respond to the Brock Turner) founder Remy Holwick who said the goal was to show that there's space to celebrate the advancement of people of color in Hollywood and simultaneously create space for those that wish to honor victims of rape and sexual assault

Model/writer Elyse Cizek also added that there's a big problem with the way rape is portrayed in film.
