This film unearths the story of black women's political marginalization, between the male-dominated Black Power movement and second wave feminism which was largely white and middle class, showing how each failed to recognize black women's overlapping racial and gender identities. A panel discussion will follow the film. This event is sponsored by the Multicultural Teaching Alliance, #WeCanDoBetter campaign and the Women's and Gender Studies Program. Free and open to the public.

There is a group of people in the world today who are more persecuted than anyone else, but they are not political or religious activists. They are girls. Being born a girl means you are more likely to be subjected to violence, disease, poverty and disadvantage than any other group on the planet. As each girl moves closer to coming of age, "I am a Girl," a feature-length documentary, reveals what it means to grow up female in the 21st century. As a day on earth transpires from dawn to dusk and into the night, we meet Manu, Kimsey, Aziza, Habiba, Breani and Katie – each on the brink of womanhood and dealing with the realities of what it means to grow up female in their world today. As they come of age in the way their culture dictates, we see remarkable heart-warming stories of resilience, bravery and humor. This event is sponsored by the Multicultural Graduate Student Association, College of Education Diversity Committee, Center for Multicultural Education, Rod Library and Women’s and Gender Studies Program. Free and open to the public.

Marie Curie wasn’t the only female scientist in history. This presentation explores four brilliant and important women scientists: Lise Meitner, who discovered nuclear fission; Chien-Shiung Wu, who overturned a major law in physics; Barbara McClintock, who was the Einstein of genetics; and Shirley Ann Jackson, whose public policy work in nuclear-power-plant oversight impacted the United States and the world. These amazing women show what can be accomplished when passion and intelligence meet determination to overcome all obstacles. Sponsored by the Women in Physics Club and Women’s and Gender Studies Program.  Free and open to the public.

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 - 7:30 pm

This panel aims to engage the audience in conversations about the ethics of gender-based discrimination and harassment in video gaming culture and social media; to discuss responsible Internet usage; and to confront personal biases. Through these conversations, aided and inspired by learning about the experiences of the panelists (professionals in the videogame industry including Brianna Wu, one of the original  targets of #gamergate; Maddy Myers; Samantha Kalman; and Patrick Klepek), we aim to challenge the audience to reflect on their relationships with media and social media; to become more critical consumers of media; and to examine their own roles in creating a more inclusive and respectful community--both at UNI and online.

Sponsored by: Women’s & Gender Studies Program; Departments of Communication Studies, Computer Science, Math, and Psychology; and a Reaching for Higher Ground grant.

Monday, April 6, 2015 - 12:00 pm
