Over the last 40 years women have made great strides in the film industry. Taking their place as industry leaders, producers, and directors, women are gaining respect and visibility. Yet, as the Bechdel Test indicates, plot lines have a long way to go in the portrayal of women.  

How has the role of women in film changed both behind the camera and in front, since 1977? Are we better off or worse off? Join the Houston film and arts community to discuss the historical relationship between women and film, where we are today, and what the next 40 years looks like.

Moderator Trish Rigdon, President, Women in Film & Television Houston will moderate a conversation with Michelle Mower, Molly Vernon, Darian Ward, Cressandra Thibodeaux, and Anita Long.

This is part of the official Community Celebration of the UH School of Public History's commemoration of the 1977 National Women's Conference. A portion of each ticket goes to help film and media students create voter education short films in 2018.
