Film Series - Sexism in Cinema

Sexism in Cinema Fifty years ago, the term "sexism" was coined. In light of this historical marker, Alamo Drafthouse and TTU invite you to a film series which considers how sexism is embedded, endorsed, and/or challenged in the cinema.

How far have we come? How far do we have to go?

Texas Tech faculty have selected films with female protagonists to view and discuss at Alamo Drafthouse, Lubbock. Movies will begin at 7:00pm with a brief introduction.  Reduced admission for all.

Thank you, organizers Dr. Allison Whitney, Dr. Don Lavigne, Dr. Elizabeth Sharp, Dr. Dana Weiser
