Location changed for NMSU's Women's History Month events

The location for Women's History Month events to be presented by New Mexico State University's Women's Studies Program throughout March has been changed to Gerald Thomas Hall Auditorium.


The free events will include guest speakers and a film series featuring Chicana and American Indian women. All events begin at 7:30 p.m. in Gerald Thomas Hall Auditorium.

"We moved the events because the sound quality was much better in the auditorium, which is important especially for the films," said Jennifer Oesterling, a graduate assistant in Women's Studies.

Guest speakers include:

--Monday, March 5, author Rosa Linda Fregoso, "Tracking the politics of Love in the Films of Lourdes Portillo."

--Monday, March 19, filmmaker Beverly Singer, "Culture Carriers: Indigenous Women and Film."

Films include:

--Thursday, March 1, "Adelante Mujeres" and "The Devil Never Sleeps."

--Thursday, March 8, "Performing the Border" and "The Desert Is no Lady."

--Monday, March 12, "Hozho of Native Women" and "Song Journey."

--Thursday, March 22, "Honey Moccasin."
