"Blowing the Whistle on Abuse: One Courageous Teenage Girl Tells Her Story," includes a film of a young woman who was abused by her father for 11 years. "My dad started sexually abusing me when I was 5. I didn't know what it was, but I knew it felt wrong because he told me not to tell mom. I felt trapped," says the young woman, who chose at 16 to finally tell her story. Participants will also get a glimpse of the cost of her going public with the abuse she experienced as well as the freedom that came when the abuse ended.
