Acclaimed Documentarian Ky Dickens To Preview New Paid Family Leave Documentary at Utica College
Utica College’s Womyn’s Resource Center will host its annual “In Celebration of Womyn” bruncheon on Sunday, March 4 at 12 p.m. The theme this year is “Nevertheless, She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.” The Womyn’s Resource Center seeks to empower all women through education, mutual support and growth.
Award-winning filmmaker Ky Dickens will be the keynote speaker. Dickens will discuss her film Zero Weeks, which highlights the significant impact that paid family leave policy would have in the United States for working mothers and fathers. The trailer premiered at the White House Summit on the United State of Women, hosted by Oprah and Michelle Obama.
Dickens’ other films include Fish Out of Water in which she examines various religious perspectives surrounding sexuality and same-sex marriage, and Sole Survivor, acquired by CNN Films, in which she speaks with sole survivors of large plane crashes.
The brunch will be held in the Library Concourse at Utica College. The cost is $15 for community members. Tickets are available through Feb. 28 at www.uticatickets.com. UC students can register for free online through Pioneer Place.
