Members Doing Great Things

NMWIF member Geri Lynn Weinstein-Matthews has acquired distribution on her documentary, and it is now on Amazon & Amazon prime! In addition, Showtime is considering the longer version.

"Justice Denied is the only documentary brave enough to tackle the U.S. military's most shameful secret: the epidemic of male-on-male rape in the armed forces, a hidden plague afflicting thousands of recruits every year. Filled with candid, uncensored interviews with rape victims, this is a shocking expose of the most important national security story that nobody is talking about. This film was screened at the Pentagon,  US Senate, military installations, universities and has been viewed in over 50 countries around the world.”

Directors: Geri Lynn Weinstein Matthews & Michael L. Miller
