Women's Center offers six-week program on 'Women in Movies'

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- "Women in Movies," a group designed for people to view thought-provoking films and exchange ideas regarding gender roles in movies, will begin meeting Tuesday, Feb. 1. The group will meet at the Women's Resource and Action Center, 130 North Madison St., across from the Iowa Memorial Union at the University of Iowa.

This six-week group provides a fun, non-alcoholic environment for women to meet, socialize and watch movies. "The movies featured in this group will focus on women in various cultures and backgrounds," says Kate Tarpey, group facilitator.

Women of color are encouraged to attend. For more information or to arrange for accommodations and child care, call the Women's Center at (319) 335-1486.
