In commemoration of the International Day of the Elimination of Violence against Women, the School of Arts and Humanities and the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies present a hallway screening of short films by women from around the globe. Violence against women takes different forms: sexual violence, religious discrimination because of the visibility of the veil, the racism of Eurocentric beauty standards, and the stigmatization of period talk. By using the power of film, women filmmakers inspire us to engage in difficult conversations for a better world for all. Join us in raising awareness about women’s struggles and celebrating the work of inspiring emerging women filmmakers from around the world.

Films are provided for free by the non-profit organization, Women’s Voices Now, promoting films made by women, about women, for all.
