Romance, Muslim Women, Grandparents, Divorce Addressed in Lineup of Events for Women’s History Month at
CSU Dominguez Hills

Carson, CA— Homeless women, Muslim women, romance, grandparents raising grandchildren, and divorce are among the subjects of weekly talks and documentaries at California State University, Dominguez Hills in celebration Women’s History Month from March 8 through April 12.

The events, free and open to the public, are sponsored by the university’s Institute of Cultural Diversity. All of them will be held at noon in Welch Hall, Room A-410. Seating is limited.

The events are:

  • “It Was a Wonderful Life,” March 8. Actress Jodi Foster narrates this documentary of six former middle-class women who had it all and lost it. They became the “hidden homeless,” avoiding public shelters and struggling to survive on their own by sleeping in their cars or on a friend’s sofa.

  • “Life of Muslim Women,” March 15. Sophia Momand will speak about the home and family life of a Muslim woman.

  • “Romance in the Golden Years,” March 22. The documentary draws a humorous and in-depth portrait of a segment of American society whose inner lives are not often explored, in the process making a snapshot of America’s senior citizens.

  • “Grandparents Raising Grandchildren,” April 5. The stories of three grandparents who have sole responsibility for raising their children’s children are told in this documentary. It is estimated that these stories are repeated in about four million households across the United States.

  • “Shattered Dishes,” April 12. The intense emotions surrounding the break up of families is confronted in this documentary. The documentary also shows the ways the experience can later affect the development of those involved and their relationships.
