The Community, Climate, and Social Justice Committee presents a free screening followed by a panel-led discussion of “She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry,” the feminist revolution that shaped our world today. A discussion will follow at 3:30 p.m. in the Communication Hub.

Panelists will include:

Liane Brandon, an award winning independent filmmaker, photographer and UMass Amherst professor emeritus, who co-founded New Day Films, and is one of the first independent women filmmakers to emerge from the Women’s Movement;

Kimberlee Pérez, assistant professor of performance studies, who has been a feminist since before being born into a family with three male siblings, where she consistently encountered double standards. As a women’s studies undergraduate, she developed language for her feminism, which is intersectional, transnational, queer, and informed primarily by woman of color feminism;

O. Angela Bowser, communications and curriculum manager in the Communications Department, and an Emmy Award winning television journalist, who's worked in New Jersey, Oklahoma, and Arizona, before venturing into non-profits and higher education;

Alyssa Labrie, a Western Mass local and UMass Amherst senior studying media communications, film studies, and theatre, who is particularly interested in feminist and queer film/theatre studies and the use of such art forms as a way to bring about social change.

Directions:

The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
