Woman: Green Initiatives’ Women’s Day Special Film Screening

  • EF | Education First, Shanghai

How do you tell if a state is making progress? If people’s lives there are improving?

The position of women within a country is one of the best indicators of how healthy it is as a society. In broader terms, it might also be the most fitting symbol of humans’ capacity to achieve incredible progress in a very short space of time and of our propensity to equally rapid regression.

Screening will be followed by a short discussion.

About the Film

Woman was born of a desire to see the world through a woman’s eyes. Then the questions started to flow.

"What are the stages marking a woman’s passage from little girl to 80-year-old grandma? What are her dreams and hopes as well as her greatest fears and scars? What does she expect of life, society and men? What is a woman’s relationship to her body and to seduction? What part do appearances and beauty play in her life? How does motherhood change her life? What do we know of female desire, and why do certain cultures find it so frightening?"

Weak, stupid, talkative, jealous, frivolous and hysterical, or else delicate, sweet, devoted, modest: all these things are allegedly part of a woman’s “nature”. But are they really?
