Update: this event has unfortunately had to be cancelled at the request of the Hallam UCU Branch, but I am still raising funds to support the Snowdrop Project. You can read more here.
Over the last nine years I have organised film screenings to celebrate International Women’s Day and raise funds for women’s charities. This year we’re supporting the Snowdrop Project.
The Snowdrop Project is a great Sheffield charity, supporting survivors of human trafficking with a range of services which include counselling, employment support, housing renovations, and educational workshops. They are in the process of fundraising for a new central base for their work.
In partnership with Sheffield Hallam University Students Union and Unite the Union, we’re screening “On the Basis of Sex”, on Thursday 5th March 2020. It’s a powerful film about Ruth Bader Ginsberg who is only the second woman confirmed as a US Supreme Court justice.
The film follows her early career as an advocate for the advancement of gender equality and women’s rights, facing several testing cases throughout the 1960s and 1970s.
Update: this event has unfortunately had to be cancelled, in support of the strikes as part of the ongoing UCU dispute but I am still raising funds to support the Snowdrop Project. You can read more here.
