Be a (Hu)man Film Series
Miss Representation: How does "raunch culture" impact young people?
With nearly one in three women in academic medicine having experienced workplace sexual harassment, one in two women nationwide reporting inappropriate touching/groping, and four in five women (nearly one in two men) reporting sexual harassment or assault, we have a public health crisis on our hands. As a group invested in forging a healthier community for patients and providers alike, we must all ask: why is this still happening and what is our role in stopping it?
MedPride and the COM - Tucson Office of Diversity and Inclusion are excited to welcome you to the inaugural screening for the Be a (Hu)man Film Series in anticipation of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April (see attached flyer for more information). To kick things off we will be viewing "Miss Representation" next week on Thursday, Feb. 7, at 6 p.m., in College of Medicine - Tucson Room 5403. (Please RSVP here to make sure there's enough food!) Our first installment will investigate one of the biggest socializing forces in our culture: media. We will be exploring what it means to define ourselves neither as stereotypes nor as reactions to stereotypes in a media-saturated environment. Are you ready to join the conversation?
