 Feminists United will be screening documentary "I Was a Teenage Feminist" this Thursday November 30th at 7:00pm in Textor 103. 

Join us for a documentary about feminism in the early 2000's and to discuss where feminism is at now in 2017. Professor and chair of the Women's and Gender Studies department, Carla Golden, will be facilitating our post-film discussion.

Film synopsis:
"Why is it that some young, independent, progressive women in today's society feel uncomfortable identifying with the F-word? Join filmmaker Therese Shechter as she takes a funny, moving and very personal journey into the heart of feminism. Armed with a video camera and an irreverent sense of humor, Shechter talks with feminist superstars, rowdy frat boys, liberated Cosmo girls and Radical Cheerleaders, all in her quest to find out whether feminism can still be a source of personal and political power."
