Amazing! Brilliant, poised, fascinating, informative. Among other things, a inside look at Stein's archives at the Beineke Library. Great lecture.

A well done movie about how females are portrayed in the media and the influence that these images have not only on our female children but our male children as well. We need to be very aware of this and vow to fight against this continuing overly sexual, power diminished, intellectually inferior, physical attributes images by using the power of the purse. These images are designed to sell products. Let's pledge to say~No More~ Great panel of women talking about their experiences and ways they handled the constant questions about their capabilities.

This forum provided three presentations on media coverage of war from seasoned journalists. The discussion of war photographs, point-of view composition, and "who is in control of the 'reality' was quite thought-provoking.

What an awesome show! No way you can sit still in a seat with that much energy in a performance. Fantastic display of culture and talent. Great show for not only adults, but kids as well!
