Women of Character and Courage: Women’s History Month Film Series 2014

The 2014 Women’s History Month Film Series with SBAI and The Little Theater begins in just a little over a week! We will be screening seven films followed by discussions around this year’s theme, Women of Character and Courage. The series will explore the lives of women and girls in underserved populations across the globe, the inequalities and hardships they face, and the ways in which they have been able to create change. The question and answer sessions with the filmmakers and the discussions with voices from our community promise to be engaging and insightful, and we encourage you to be a part of them!

Below you will find a listing of the film screenings and discussions that will take place during Women of Character and Courage: Women’s History Month Film Series 2014.
