“Mexico: Rebellion of the Weeping Women” to Be Shown Free
Carson, CA-“Mexico: Rebellion of the Weeping Women,” a film about Mexican women who are fighting for
equality, women’s rights, and to find what happened to children kidnapped during political riots, will be
shown from noon to 1:01 p.m. Sept. 26 at California State University, Dominguez Hills. The event is free
and open to the public. Those who wish may bring a lunch to the showing.
There are segments in the film from journalists, writers and political activists. In addition, the film
addresses machismo (defined by Merriam Webster’s Online as an exaggerated masculinity) and the sexism that
can result from it, as well as addressing myths that have been used to set standards for feminine behavior.
The film will be shown by the Institute for the Study of Cultural Diversity in room A-410 in the Welch Hall
building. Seating is limited.
Welch Hall is directly east of parking lot 3. Lot 3 is most easily accessed from the Tamcliff Avenue-Toro
Center Drive entrance from East Victoria Street. The campus is on the east side of Avalon Boulevard between
East Victoria and University Avenue. It is south of the 91 freeway, north of the 405 freeway, and east of the
Parking permits are available at the yellow automated vending machines at the periphery of the parking lots.
