Bucknell’s Student Chapter of Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR) will host a free, public screening of the documentary, “Liberated: The New Sexual Revolution,” on Monday, March 19 at 7 p.m. in the Elaine Langone Center’s Forum. A panel discussion with the filmmakers and some individuals featured in the film will follow the screening.
The film is a documentary about coming of age in today’s young adult hookup culture.
