F1 Forestry Lecture Room
Just like the TV gameshow, but feminist style!
Come on down for our first-ever Feminist Jeopardy game night with a variety of topics and categories related to gender and feminism. Join with others to play in teams or come along just to watch – see how much you know and learn about some new concepts and famous figures along the way. Light refreshments will be served before the event and we will have prizes for the winners.
The Hunting Ground film screening and discussion
(co-hosted with UC Film Club)
Monday, 17 July @ 6:30pm
C1 Central Lecture Theatre
Join us for a free public screening of the award-winning documentary The Hunting Ground (2015), a startling exposé of rape crimes on U.S. college campuses, their institutional cover-ups, and the devastating toll they take on students and families. The film follows the lives of several undergraduate assault survivors as they attempt to pursue both their education and justice. This screening will be followed by a facilitated discussion about these important issues and actions we can take to address them here in New Zealand.
