Abstract

In this paper, I contextualize the topic of sexual misconduct at the University of Texas to the fields of documentary film theories and practices, intersectional feminism and the study of rape culture in the United States. I explore my personal experience learning about sexual misconduct at my school, meeting protesters on campus, filming the Coalition Against Sexual Misconduct (a student protest organization), editing the film and my take-aways from creating We Can’t Stop Thinking About It. My hope is that people reading and watching my thesis will reflect on sexual misconduct procedures in the education system, think about the consequences of those procedures and consider change.
