Looking forward to Friday's screening of "Miss Representation" -- " A relevant and important doc that deconstructs the insidious role of visual media in the widespread, unbalanced depiction of women and girls" (Justin Lowe, The Hollywood Reporter, 2011)
Here's a link to the trailer:

Get excited for tomorrow's call in to show our support for the Girls Count Act of 2014! Let's take advantage of our geographical diversity here at NCSSM and try to contact all 15 of NC's congress members! Even if you can't make it to the group call in, try to call in on your own time or write a letter or email to your representatives in Congress to show your support.

Thanks to all who participated in our October #HeforShe Campaign! It was a great success as we were able to raise awareness about the importance of solidarity in achieving worldwide gender equality.  This movement is of special significance to us at the School of Science and Math because many of us are young women training for careers in men-dominated STEM fields, and, as in every aspect of gender equality, everyone's support and encouragement is necessary to enable us to contribute to the fullest extent of our abilities, undaunted and not stereotyped based on gender norms.  (More information about #HeforShe can be found at www.heforshe.org).
