Women Veterans and Intentional Inclusivity

Join us at the November 10 Branch meeting to learn about women veterans in Oregon. Our speaker will be Elizabeth A. Estabrooks, the Oregon Women Veterans Coordinator with the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs. Oregon is one of only a handful of states to have a permanent full-time coordinator dedicated to serving the unique needs of women veterans. Their goal is to improve outreach to women who have served in the military, gather better data and research on women veterans in Oregon, participate in policy that is or may be relevant to women veterans, and help improve the level of care women veterans receive.
Liz will bring the “I Am Not Invisible” exhibit to our meeting. The exhibit was developed to bring awareness of women veterans in Oregon and help the community to understand the contributions of women in the military and understand their unique experiences, challenges, barriers, and needs. Liz uses the exhibit to show how we can expand our vision of veterans to include women and to explore how to be intentionally inclusive of women veterans.
When: Saturday, November 10, 9:30 am-noon
Where: Diversions Room, Stevenson Union SOU

Branch Meeting Saturday March 10 Women in Film: In Front of and Behind the Camera

Women in Film: In Front of and Behind the Camera

Our March 10 Branch meeting will feature Joanne Feinberg, Associate Producer of the award-winning documentary “A Thousand Mothers.” The 39 minute long documentary will be followed by a discussion and Q&A.

“A Thousand Mothers,” set at an ancient nunnery above the Irrawaddy River, looks at the lives of Buddhist nuns in Sagaing, Myanmar and contrasts the opportunities offered to them at the nunnery to the limited choices available to girls and women in Myanmar itself. Directed by Kim Shelton, this documentary had an all women crew on the ground in Myanmar.

Joanne Feinberg founded Fein Films in 2015 after 11 years as Director of Programming at the Ashland Independent Film Festival. She was instrumental in creating this highly respected regional festival admired by filmmakers and audiences alike. She graduated with honors from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with a combined degree in Cinema Studies and Film & TV Production.
