“Women in Time” documentary screening Nov. 29

Join LAU NY and the Institute for Women’s Studies in the Arab World (IWSAW) for the free screening of  “Women in Time”, a documentary tracing the evolution of the Lebanese women’s movement in Lebanon from the late 19th century until the outbreak of the civil war in 1975. It highlights the achievements of prominent Lebanese women activists who have marked the history of this movement, based on archive research, footage and interviews with relatives and close friends.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Myriam Sfeir, the assistant director of IWSAW.  IWSAW at the Lebanese American University (LAU) was established in 1973 to pay tribute to LAU’s origins as a girls’ school and to fulfill its commitment to education, empowerment, and equality for women and girls. IWSAW was the first institute of its kind in the Arab region, and one of the first in the world.
