Women’s Center to screen film on female veterans

The Office of Disability, Re-Entry and Veteran Services, in conjunction with the MSU Women’s Center, will offer a screening of the film “Lioness” on Nov. 7 at 5:30 p.m. in the Procrastinator Theatre.

The film chronicles the experiences of female combat veterans serving in the Iraq war. After the screening, a panel of veterans, all women, will answer questions about the film, life in the military and serving overseas.

“This program is valuable not only as part of women’s and military histories, but also as part of our American history,” said Elizabeth Danforth, director of the Women’s Center. “The roles of women, as dictated by both law and social norms, have been limited in this nation’s past. [This film] is one example that challenges the validity of those limitations.”
