Screening: Rise of the Wahine - Champions of Title IX

Location: Campus Center Plaza (UCB 100 if it rains)

Come and join us for the screening of this amazing documentary!

"Rise of the Wahine: Champions of Title IX" is an edge-of-your-seat David vs. Goliath tale of how culture is transformed and how to rise above the challenges in your life and bring an end to injustice in the world around you. It reveals how, in the years following the Civil Rights movement and the passage of Title IX in 1972, a headstrong African-American female coach, the first Asian-American U.S. congresswoman, and the team captain of a rag-tag female volleyball team, battled discrimination from the halls of Washington D.C. to the dusty volleyball courts of the University of Hawaii, fighting for the rights of young women to play sports.

We hope to see you there!

Special Restrictions: Open to all!
