The Women’s Center is happy to announce the third film of our Intersectional Film Series.  This particular event is a film screening and discussion designed to examine the the complexities involved with being a woman of faith. In our discussion we will work to unpack just a few of the profound intersections of Islam, empowerment, and resistance.  We invite all students to come and participate in our film screening and our discussion! We will watch the film The Light in Her Eyes and host a brief discussion after.
