The Institute for Research on Women (IROW) is pleased to present its second annual Transnational Feminist Film Series. This year, the event borrows its theme from feminist historian Gerda Lerner's book of the same title. Featuring films by or about women, we will question the meaning of "history" and its relevance to the present and to social justice.
