Lakeland’s Women’s Center is hosting a series of award-winning PBS short films (10 minutes each). Each film profiles diverse and little-known trailblazing women from the turn of the 20th century, and pairs them with contemporary women who followed in their footsteps. The in-depth look at each woman’s life highlights many societal issues that are every bit as relevant today as they were in the early 20th century. The films are fast-paced, colorful and full of interesting revelations. Each film screening will be followed by a short discussion led by a special guest.
These events are free and open to the public. Attendees will receive links to join each event via Webex to the email supplied at registration.
Each event takes place noon - 1 p.m.
