Busy March!

Things have been slow for us on the internet these past few weeks because we’ve been so busy on campus! The WRC is sponsoring and co-sponsoring a number of events on campus this month in honor of Women’s History Month. Here’s what’s up:

Last Friday we attended the Women’s Leadership Conference, featuring Ameena Mathews as a key-note speaker. We were so honored to see her speak; what a brave and amazing woman! If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the PBS Frontline documentary The Interrupters (online for free!) to learn more about Mathews’ work against violence. 

On Monday we hosted Tiona M. and her film black.womyn. conversations with lesbians of African descent. The film was great, as was the conversation afterward! We can’t wait to see Tiona’s new project, due to come out early next year. Check out her website here

For International Women’s Day (TOMORROW!) we’ll be at the Women + Film VOICES Film Festival for a screening of Poster Girl. The short starts at 6pm and will be followed by a Q&A with director Sara Nesson. Learn more here. & If you’re interested in going stop by Metro’s Institute for Women’s Studies and Services to get a free ticket! 

Stay tuned for more updates on what’s we’re up to this month! We hope to see you around.
