Women’s History Month film festival – Wed., 3/2

In honor of Women’s History Month, the UW-Whitewater Women’s Issues Committee is sponsoring a film festival. All films will be shown in the Summers Auditorium of the U.C., and are FREE OF CHARGE.

Wednesday, March 2 at 7:00 pm: Straightlaced – How Gender’s Got Us All Tied Up
A powerful documentary about the lives of teens and young adults as seen through the gender lens. Approaching society’s ideas and ideals of gender through clothes, sexuality, sports, dance, safety, consumerism and emotion, the film addresses the complexities of conceptions of masculinity and femininity for Generation Z. “From girls confronting popular messages about culture and body image, to boys who are sexually active just to prove they aren’t gay, the students in Straightlaced illustrate the toll that deeply held stereotypes and rigid gender policing have on all of our lives.”

Future films:

  • Wed., March 16 at 7:00 pmNot Just a Game – Power, Politics & American Sports
  • Wed., March 30 at 5:30 pmPray the Devil Back to Hell
