Two-part social justice film shown Dec. 4-5
WAUKESHA, WIS.— A Carroll University showing of the film “Half the Sky” will be in two parts on Tuesday, Dec. 4, and Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012. The movie will be from 5:30-8 p.m. Tuesday and 4:30-7 p.m. on Wednesday, in the Stackner Ballroom of the Campus Center, 101 N. East Ave., Waukesha, both nights.
This event is presented by Panhellenic Council, Carroll’s governing body for women’s fraternal organizations. The film addresses the social injustice issues of gender-based violence, sex trafficking, education for girls and women, maternal mortality, forced and intergenerational prostitution, and economic empowerment. It also shows how to help others have rewarding lives with schooling, a skilled trade or a college degree.
Each night will conclude with a discussion led by Dr. Richard Coon, associate professor of sociology and criminal justice, Karla Strand, instructional services and diversity librarian, Dr. Rebecca Imes, associate professor of communication, and Dr. Abigail Markwyn, assistant professor of history. Students will reflect on the issues faced by women and children across the world, and lean about solutions to engage in on campus.
