7 p.m. SPEC, Student Union Building. What’s a better way to spend a Thursday evening than watching a great movie and snacking on some free popcorn? Don’t miss “Suffragette,” a thrilling drama about the women of early 1900’s England who risked it all for their rights.
This story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement follows Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan), a working mother and wife. Radicalized and turning to violence as their only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. The story of Maud’s fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, but also heart-breaking and inspirational.
