The Line Campaign

Recently named one of the “10 Filmmakers to Watch in 2011” by Independent Magazine, Nancy’s work explores the intersection of sexuality, new media, and navigating partner communication about consent. She is the director and producer of the documentary films The Line (Media Education Foundation, 2009) and xoxosms (May 2011).

Nancy Schwartzman has worked in violence prevention for over a decade. She is the founder and Executive Director of The Line Campaign a 501 (c) 3 dedicated to empowering young leaders to end sexual violence using original media to inspire action. Drawing on her experience in the field, she is a much sought-after speaker, traveling extensively to colleges, community centers and non-profits in the Unites States and internationally, including at Yale, Brown, M.I.T. and 92d Street Y in Tribeca. Using media and workshop discussions, Schwartzman challenges thousands of students to “think twice” and to challenge normative behavior among college youth. Schwartzman opens up a dialogue about desire, consent and boundaries, advising student groups, faculty and administration on how to foster healthier communities.

SlutWalk: Why I Am Marching

SlutWalk is a grassroots movement, often spearheaded by young people organizing for the first time. Though the name has causes controversy, SlutWalk was never meant to be divisive. Instead it stands as a challenge to the notion that what might fall under a contemporary description of “sluttiness”—revealing clothing, flirting, drinking—does not equate consent to sex, and never justifies rape.
