Film: From the Second Wave to the Tidal Wave and NextStepRun!
Film #1: From the Second Wave to the Tidal Wave
“From the Second Wave to the Tidal Wave" tells the stories of four of those women, Nancy Wanderer who went off to Wellesley where she along with Hillary Rodham (Clinton) vied for class leadership, Joyce Elliott who was an unlikely pioneer in Arkansas’ school integration, Christine Lesiak who spent her years at UCLA in campus protests, and filmmaker Pam Maus, filmmaker who, as a seven-year-old learned about social injustice watching the violent integration of Little Rock Central High School of television.
Film #2: NextStepRun!
NextStepRun! tells the stories of four women running for elective office in their respective local House districts during the 2014 midterm elections. This documentary film features how they confront the unique barriers to entry that keep women from running for elective office and ultimately has ensured the political system as a white male domain. This documentary is especially time-sensitive as the number of women choosing running for elective office is surging. The four candidates featured in NextStepRun! represent diverse demographics and social variables including geography, political affiliation, marital and family status, ethnicity, and rural vs. urban locations.
Post-show panel discussion with Pam Maus will follow the film screenings.
