Cultural Movie Night

In order to spread awareness about women in different cultures, the Delta Tau Lambda sorority is holding a cultural movie night. “In the time of the Butterflies” is based on a true story about the struggle of three sisters who lost their lives due to their part in an underground plan to overthrow the government in the Dominican Republic during the 1960s. The event is free and open to the public. The screening will begin promptly at 9:30 p.m. in Room 2259 of the Grand Valley State University Kirkhof Center on March 31.

In 2011, the documentary “Bro-Code” was produced to examine how society influences boys to become sexist men. Following the film, Trey Sumner will open the floor for a discussion regarding how those in attendance feel about the topic. The discussion will go in depth about the dangerous influence of masculinity in today’s culture that can snowball into sexual assault cases. The screening takes place on March 31 and begins at 7 p.m. in Room 102 of Lake Huron Hall at Grand Valley State University. The event is free. For more information, contact Alyssa Phillips at [email protected].
