In this International Women’s Day be heard and learn about women in film and find your voice at this interactive Teach-In! So often women are seen and not heard. How many women can you picture in films and then how many of these women can you quote? In this workshop we’ll talk about women who have made an impact in film, how we can progress in the male-dominated entertainment industry, participate in a writing exercise, and then turn the camera on ourselves!

The Women’s Strike on March 8th promises to be another major event in the developing resistance to Trump. We hope to use this opportunity to build collaboration and solidarity between student groups working on different progressive causes. As such, we are proposing a speakout before the rally at Washington Square. Afterwards, we can walk to the rally in Washington Square Park as a progressive NYU contingent! The speakout will be relatively informal – anyone who wants to will have an opportunity to address the crowd. Join us in building a bigger and better-organized left at NYU!
