Dear L-SETAC community:

Join us on Tuesday March 8, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, to discuss the movie This Changes Everything. This eye-opening documentary describes and synthesizes data on the historical and ongoing gender disparity in Hollywood, including the impact it has on young girls not seeing role models that look like them. Many well-known actresses, directors, and executives account their experiences navigating the media entertainment industry with the underrepresentation and misrepresentation of women.
