Women's Studies kicks off Feminist Film Series; Chocolate provided

The Womens Studies Program at Austin Peay State University is kicking off its annual Feminist Film Series with the promise of food for the soul and … chocolate.

The series opens with a screening of Real Women Have Curves at 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 30, in room 240, Harned Hall. The movie follows the story of Ana, a first-generation Mexican-American teenager torn between accepting a full scholarship to Columbia University or staying home to work, as her traditionalist parents expect.
