"Voices of Feminism" -
A performance organized by PhD Fine Arts Doctoral candidate Jeanne Haggard. This event will reflect on writings by women that speak to issues of concern for all. These pieces still have the power to inspire us to action - whether that be social, economic and/or political.

Lunafest - The Women’s Studies Program proudly sponsored Lunafest a national traveling festival of short films by, for, and about women. This was a one night only event at the Louise H. Underwood Center for the Arts. General admission seating is $10 for the general public and $7 for students. 100 percent of proceeds was donated to charity: 15 percent to the Breast Cancer Fund, and the remaining 85 percent of proceeds go directly back to community organizations.
Lunafest ran from October – March. In that time it was shown by more than 100 venues nationwide and was seen by over 20,000 viewers. Lunafest film’s have won industry awards and audience accolades, and the films selected for 2007-08 Lunafest shared this brilliance. From quirky animation to touching documentaries, the 9 selected films were incredibly diverse in both style and subject matter, united by a common thread of exceptional storytelling by...for...about women.
The screening coincided with the Louise H. Underwood Center for the Arts’ Thursday Night Arts programming. The Louise H. Underwood Center for the Arts is located at 511 Ave. K, Lubbock, TX, (806) 762-8606.
