Screening of the short film The F-word: A Video about Feminism, followed by discussion.

The F-Word is a provocative look at the power of the word “feminism” in the U.S. Why does it mean so many different things to different people? Pithy interviews with women and men from diverse backgrounds are rhythmically intercut with computer-animated quotes from the likes of Barbara Smith to Pat Robertson, all set to an upbeat rap accompaniment. Designed to open up attitudes, this video proves feminism is still something worth talking about – hotly debated, widely misconstrued, but undeniably an act of life.

Weekly brown bag discussions on Thursdays @ Noon, different speaker/topic each week.
