Femme Film Series portrays women in adversity

The Mareyjoyce Green Women’s Center is presenting a series of films that display powerful portrayals of women through the medium of film.

The Femme Film Fridays Series began its first showing on Sept. 22 and will run until Nov. 17. The series features several different themes that touch on a variety of struggles that women face. Each showing begins at 11:30 a.m. and audience members can enjoy free popcorn.

The first movie shown this fall was “Girl Rising,” centering on educational storytelling to bring impoverished girls into the classroom. The second film,” Dark Girls,” deals with skin color biases in black American culture. The third film, “Persepolis,” depicts a rebellious teenage girl’s life in a politically tense environment.

The next film to be shown this Thursday, Nov. 3 is “The Danish Girl,” about the life and work of a trans-gender artist. “North Country,” a movie that focuses on sexual harassment among union workers, will wrap up the series on Nov. 17.

The Mareyjoyce Women’s Center is directed towards any people interested in furthering their education on women’s issues, as well as those wanting to encourage, support and inspire women of all ages and stages in life. This includes students, returning students and student-parents.

Graduate assistant Emily Forsee said that her main objective at the Women’s Center “is to create a safe and welcoming physical space for students on campus, with a focus on women and non-binary folks, and to create programming that educates and empowers the student body on issues of womanhood.”

The Mareyjoyce Green Women’s Center is located at 2121 Euclid Avenue, Main Classroom 142. You can reach them at 216-687-4674 and womenscenter@csuohio.edu.
