When strong, beautiful women make up their beautiful minds

Let's go to the movies on Sunday.

Hilary Swank (right), Anjelica Huston, Julia Ormond and Frances O'Connor star in "Iron Jawed Angels," about a group of young women who risked their lives to help American women win the right to vote.

It got great reviews, a Golden Globe and a standing ovation at the Sundance Film Festival. With that cast, how could it miss?

The movie is FREE, and refreshments will be served.

Sequoia Middle School, 1:30 p.m. Sunday, March 9, in the lovely McLaughlin Auditorium. Sponsored by the Redding League of Women Voters and Mercy Medical Center.

See you there.

  1. In one of my creative writing classes a few years back, I posed the question "How many of you women in the room consider yourselves feminists?" Only one other woman raised her hand and my jaw hit the floor. There were about 15 women in the room, women who were sitting in an upper-level college classroom - smart, educated. The word has such negative connotations these days.

    Feminism, as I know the definition, is simply the view that women are inherently equal to men and deserve equal rights and opportunities. Period. But I guess they didn't see it that way.

    If I could have, I would have shown this film to every single one of them and then asked the question again.

    Go watch the movie. You won't regret it. Promise.
