Documentary Discussion Series

The purpose of our Documentary Discussion Series is to explore the ways gender and sexism – as they intersect with other identities and systems of oppression – operate at an individual, interpersonal, and societal level. Participants will learn how to analyze social issues using an intersectional feminist perspective. The objective is to promote critical thinking and respectful discussion skills by offering participants the opportunity to engage with people of varied backgrounds and perspectives. Participants are given resources for exploring the topic of each documentary further and suggestions for turning their new awareness into action.
