International Federation of University Women’s representative to the United Nations, and Past President, AAUW Poughkeepsie
March 14, 2013 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Poughkeepsie Geeta Desai presented a discussion of the following statement.
If we, American women, are to secure a future for ourselves that provides gender equality, financial stability, access to quality education, physical safety, social justice and clean air, water and food, we must take a giant step back to reach the poorest women in some of the world’s oldest countries and cultures – women that time itself has forgotten.
With these women, we hold the key to the future we desire in this country.
She was joined by other women from AAUW that shared some of what they had learned by attending the Commission on the Status of Women at the UN in New York City.
On January 10, 2013, the film "Miss Representation" was viewed by a large group of members of AAUW and friends.
Mia Mask, Associate Professor of Film at Vassar College, led the discussion of the film. She is the author of the acclaimed, Divas on Screen: Black Women in American Film, featured writer at the AAUW's 2011 Writer's Tea, and member of AAUW.
The discussion was wide ranging and gave all that attended much to think about and thoughts of future action.
