Backlash: Misogyny in the Digital Age
Film screening, Q&A, and reception
March 8, 2023 from 4-7 pm — Abbotsford campus
As part of the President’s Leadership Lecture Series, you are invited to a screening of the critically acclaimed full-length documentary Backlash: Misogyny in the Digital Age.
The documentary directed by Léa Clermont-Dion and Guylaine Maroist explores technology-facilitated gender-based violence, shedding light on the various forms of backlash and online misogyny women commonly experience for simply existing.
After the screening, join a short Q&A with Sundeep Hans, UFV Director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, and Dr. Allyson Jule, Dean of UFV Faculty of Education, Community, and Human Development.
A reception with light refreshments will follow immediately after the closing remarks.
This event is free and open to everyone, but seating is limited — RSVP early to secure your spot.
