On March 16, 2011, 27-year old veterinary technician, Jennifer Snyder of Allentown, PA was murdered by her married boyfriend of more than two years after he learned that she was pregnant. The director was moved to create this documentary after learning a disturbing fact: homicide is a leading cause of death during pregnancy. The film examines the anatomy of abusive relationships and looks beyond the visible traumas associated with them.
The Fem Flicks Film Series is a joint effort of the UNT Women’s Studies Program, the UNT Multicultural Center and the UNT Media Library. A guest lecturer will accompany select events.
