A Movie about Female Empowerment

This week the Student Government Association (SGA) is sponsoring Women’s Week.

Among the events is tonight’s screening of the 1979 film “Norma Rae”. Oscar Winner Sally Fields stars as a single mother working at a factory in the south. When a union organizer from the north comes to form a union Norma’s life changes. Going against the male-dominated society & workplace she begins to grow and take charge of her own life. This is an excellent film about women and unions.

The showing is at 6:30 in room 12-229. Popcorn will be served!

Professor of History Mark Sample will introduce the film.
