Deconstructing the Chick Flick

In celebration of INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, the F-Word Committee presents “Deconstructing the Chick Flick”, a three part series that explores Hollywood’s presentation of women’s bodies in film. Join us for a mixture of popcorn, pop culture and gender politics.

Tuesday March 8 – Legally Blonde: Is Elle Woods a feminist role model?
Wednesday March 16 – Pretty Woman: Do romance and prostitution really live happily ever after?
Tuesday March 22 – Boys Don’t Cry: An alternative ‘chick’ flick?

The movies start at 8:30 p.m. in the Student Centre Lounge. The screenings will be followed by a discussion with F-Word Faculty members. For more information, please contact Tarah Brookfield (tbrookfield@wlu.ca).
