The Duke Divinity School Women's Center will hold a brown-bag lunch on "Studying Women, Studying Religion" with Elizabeth Clark, John Carlisle Kilgo Professor of Religion and professor of history at Duke University.

Since she is retiring this spring, the event will be an informal opportunity to hear her reflections on a life spent in the academy and her transformative work in patristics.

Women's Week: Monday Potluck Supper and Screening of "Miss Representation"

606 N. Gregson St., Durham, NC
womenscenter@div.duke.edu

As part of Women's Week, the Duke Divinity School Women's Center will host a potluck dinner and screening of the 2011 documentary Miss Representation.

The film explores and challenges how the mainstream media offers limited portrayals of women and girls by sending the message that a woman's power lies in her youth, beauty, and sexuality. Such portrayals make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself, according to the film.

This event is open to the Divinity School community. Participants are asked to bring a covered dish to share during the casual fellowship and discussion. Directions are available in the Women's Center.
