From Penn State Beaver

Documentary Film Screening: “So, You Think You is Woman, Hey?,”
You are invited to a free screening of the documentary film, “So, You Think You is Woman, Hey?,” produced by Penn State Beaver associate professor of communications Juliette Storr. Dr. Storr is a native of the Bahamas, and her documentary examines portrayals of women in Bahamian media. The title, "So, You Think You Is Woman, Hey?" comes from a cultural expression in the Bahamas that is symbolic of gender performance, especially for girls and women, and is used to “impose punishment and control or authority,” Storr said. Stay for the question and answer session after the screening.
