Hello All,
This looks great, my friend DaVaughn asked me to pass it along. You 
should all consider attending this as well as "The Message of Crash" at 
7:30 Thursday night in the Ira Allen Chapel, and "The Female Orgasm" at 
9PM on Friday in CC Theater.
It looks like it's going to be a good week...
Hope it's good to you all,

The Next Installment Women's HerStory Month Programming
                            "Slaying the Dragon"
                               Hosted by SOJO

Slaying the Dragon takes a close look at the portrayal of Asian and
Asian American women in Hollywood films.  This has been a subject of
much debate over time and now the debate comes to UVM.

The film "Slaying the Dragon" is an one-hour long documentary which
identifies and
examines the various racial and stereotypical roles and portrayals
that Asian-American women have played in American media.

Particular emphasis is place on the evolution of the Asian-American
women?s image in American film; from the use of white actors to play
Asians in early American films to the type casting of Asian-Americans
women in to the role of anchorwoman of today and seductive, stealthy
martial arts actress.

Come watch this film and share your thoughts in a facilitated
discussion following the screening by members of SOJO Special Ops.
