The New Face of Feminism
The fact that men were excluded from the feminist movement has often been a critique leveled against that movement. In fact, second-wave feminists had sound reasons for this exclusion, but today, many recognize the inevitability of a change. Indeed, many feel that it is time men were included. Although a contested issue, some men now define themselves as feminist or pro-feminist. Our panel will discuss the various issues related to this topic.

Family Letters: Escaping the Holocaust
When her mother died at the age of 96, Susanne Sommer discovered letters and other documents stored away in folders, shoe boxes, closets, and trunks. The correspondence described her parents' desperate efforts to leave Nazi Germany in 1938. At that time, the situation for Germany's Jews had become increasingly ominous, and most countries, including the United States, were hostile to receiving Jewish refugees. The letters describe a compelling story between her parents and a distant cousin in Arlington, Virginia who struggled to help them find a way out. Susanne compiled these letters and collaborated with a local playwright to write Echoes in the Heart, which will be presented in March at the Geery Theater in Sacramento.
Presenter:  U.S. History Class/Debbie Moreno

Ana Moura: Fado Singer
The 32-year-old singer has become a leading exponent of fado-the poetic, deeply expressive idiom which personifies the Portuguese psyche. As with blues and country music in the US, tango in Argentina, or samba in Brazil, fado has evolved from humble origins to win broad appeal. "It needs no translation," Ms. Moura says simply. "It is music that exposes every vocal nuance, and Ms. Moura had nothing to hide. Her lush alto voice can be smoky and hesitant or clear and pointed" (New York Times).

"The Invisible War" screening
The Invisible War is about a groundbreaking investigation of one of America's most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem - today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 19,300 service members sexually assaulted in 2010 alone. Focusing on the powerfully emotional stories of rape victims, The Invisible War is a moving indictment of the systemic cover-up of military sex crimes, chronicling the women's struggles to rebuild their lives and fight for justice. It also features hard-hitting interviews with high-ranking military officials and members of Congress that reveal the perfect storm of conditions that exist for rape in the military, its long-hidden history, and what can be done to bring about much-needed change. Running Time: 97 minutes with an intermission. Q&A to follow. This documentary received the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award this year.
Presenter: Harris Center for the Arts
When: 7:00pm
Where: Harris Center for the Arts
