March 6 – Women Who Make America with Amy Richards
5:00pm – 8:00pm
Anderson University Center: 203 (Regency Room)
View part of the documentary MAKERS: Women Who Make America and join a discussion with Amy Richards, well-known feminist activist and co-founder of the Third Wave Foundation. MAKERS: Women Who Make America tells the remarkable story of the most sweeping social revolution in American history, as women have asserted their rights to a full and fair share of political power, economic opportunity, and personal autonomy. It's a revolution that has unfolded in public and private, in courts and Congress, in the boardroom and the bedroom, changing not only what the world expects from women, but what women expect from themselves. MAKERS brings this story to life with priceless archival treasures and poignant, often funny interviews with those who led the fight, those who opposed it, and those first generations to benefit from its success.

March 11 – Journey of the Golden Lady: Mutzy's fight to recover family art stolen by the Nazi's.

Local man, Peter Altmann, had a mother who was a fighter. The Nazi's confiscated art from her family home in the 1930's. Maria fought Austria for over a decade to have the five pieces of Klimt art returned to her family. One piece worth over $130,000 now hangs in the New York's Neue Galerie. Mut in German means courage. Maria's well deserved nickname is Mutzy.

March 14 – Psychology Department Colloquium Series: Anticipating Stigma: The Double Burden of Homelessness and Race
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Xavier 250: Janie Gilpin Classroom
Psychology Department Colloquium Series Presents Anticipating Stigma: The Double Burden of Homelessness and Race. Carolyn Weisz, University of Puget Sound concerns people have about being negatively stereotyped or treated badly because of a stigmatized identity can impact health and well-being as well as performance. Social stigma, whether anticipated or experienced, may create distress for individuals without homes and play a role in sustaining homelessness. Dr. Weisz will discuss a series of studies conducted with individuals experiencing homelessness in Pierce County. The research examines the role of stigma related to both homelessness and race in predicting psychological distress, physical health, and avoidance of using services. A focus on race is particularly important because of the large overrepresentation of African Americans among those experiencing homelessness both nationally and locally (HUD, 2011). Findings suggest that concerns about stigma may be a psychological burden for homeless individuals, and that being a member of multiple stigmatized groups may increase this burden.

March 13 – Wasteland Viewing and Panel
6:30 – 8:45pm
Hong Hall Lounge
This event will focus on the intersection of sustainability, art, and Hispanic studies through the documentary Wasteland and a panel of faculty.

March 19 – Women in Flight: Jackie Cochran
10:30am – 12:30pm
Garfield Book Company Community Room
LEARNING IS FOREVER/L.I.F.E.
Fran Postma will speak to L.I.F.E. There were numerous women pilots who far exceeded Amelia Earhart's well publicized accomplishments, one being Jackie Cochran. She was probably the greatest female pilot in aviation history. Jackie's humble childhood made her only more determined to achieve. Her second grade education didn't stop her. Neither did her lack of money. She set more aviation speed, altitude and distance records than any other pilot, male or female, in aviation history. Jackie was an irresistible force. A native-born American heroine.
Learning Is ForEver is offering this presentation free to PLU students, staff and faculty. For more information please contact Laura Stewart at stewarla@plu.edu or at (253)241-4166.
