PICK OF THE WEEK
PICTURES DO LIE –
Movies and mass media shape our perceptions and expectations of the world. While their images of men may be unrealistic, women tend to be either missing or confined to very limited roles. A new award-winning documentary challenges that situation. Watch the star-filled trailer online, and think about arranging for a screening in your school, university, office, church or other social setting.
