Upcoming Sex + Gender Films Series screening at the Women’s Resources Center

The Women’s Resources Center (703 S. Wright, 2nd Floor, Champaign) is hosting a screening of an interesting film, I Wasn’t Always Dressed Like This, this Thursday at 7 p.m.

Here’s some info about the film:

In a very intimate and meditative mode, three Muslim women reflect around issues of cultural memory, identity, self-censorship, feminism, politics and media. By appreciating the personal and experiential quality of veiling, this documentary is able to articulate critically and reflexively while challenging its popular perception. This event is part of Islam Awareness Week at the University of Illinois and in conjunction with Wear a Hijab Day. Post film discussion facilitated by Muslim Student Association and the Women’s Resources Center.
