The Hunting Ground Australia Project 

Millwood Consulting's Director Allison Henry is excited to be leading the impact campaign for The Hunting Ground Australia Project, one of six 2015 Good Pitch Australia films

The Hunting Ground (2015) is a critically acclaimed US feature length documentary that focuses on the personal stories of students who have experienced sexual assault on campuses, and the institutional failure of some American universities to respond effectively and appropriately to such abuses. 

The Hunting Ground Australia Project is using the documentary as a tool to engage Australian universities, and the broader community, in a collaborative campaign around the incidence of, and responses to, sexual violence on Australian university campuses.

An August 2016 progress report outlines the positive initial impact of the project. 

In April 2017 The Caledonia Foundation, as lead philanthropic supporter of Good Pitch Australia, was awarded the 2017 Gender-wise Philanthropy Award for The Hunting Ground Australia Project.
