The film, an official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, examines how women are portrayed in the media, offering surprising evidence that women are still facing unfortunate odds even in modern society.
A panel discussion after the screening will include ECU professors Todd Fraley, School of Communication; Christine Avenarious, Department of Anthropology; Marieke Van Willigen, Women’s Studies Program; and Amanda Klein, Department of English, Film Studies.
A reception will be held after the panel discussion. The event is free and open to the public. It is a passport event for ECU students.
