Last week our active Womens' Empowerment club hosted an evening centered around the theme of "Women in Media". Students and faculty joined the evening event to see engaging presentations and participate in lively discussion.
Each member presented a media clip focused on the sub-topics and ran the discussion for their media piece. The sub-topics included:
- Historical Figures
- Women in the Workplace
- Disney Characters
Clips included "Hidden Figures, On the Basis of Sex, Harriet, He Named me Malala, Legally Blonde and advertising clip Misty Copeland 's Under Armour Ad.
The Women's Empowerment Club is a student led discussion group that focuses on social justice for all people. Each year students host an event with outside speakers and student entertainment around issues important to the group.
Thank you to Rayne '21 for hosting this thought provoking evening for the Newman community.
