Monday, October 24, 2-4 pm in the Forum, Flynn Campus Center (3-130)
The film, The Women of Summer, is an emotionally riveting and inspirational story of a summer program for blue collar women that took place at Bryn Mawr College from 1921-1938. The story is told through the eyes of the alumnae fifty years later at a special reunion. The program forever changed their lives and inspired these women to become union, community and government leaders. This film is a living demonstration of the power of education to improve lives. Discussion following will be led by Sally Dingee and Anne Hughes.

Wednesday, November 9, 3:30-5 pm in the Warshof Conference Center, Flynn Campus Center (Monroe A)
