A flyer for a New School University screening of the new Jennifer Baumgardner documentary “It Was Rape,” which chronicles eight women’s experiences of being raped, was defaced by someone on the New School’s campus. The flyer — which was defaced with the phrase “And It Felt Great” — was spotted by a student in one of the campus buildings, taken down and then handed over to the school’s wellness center.

“I Was Raped” Shirt Sparks Controversy & Discussion
