Newcomb Feminist Film Series featuring discussion and reception with filmmaker Mark Schuller

Join us for a special screening of Poto Mitan: Haitian Women, Pillars of the Global Economy with director Mark Schuller, and a special reception to follow. Told through the lives of five courageous Haitian women workers, Poto Mitan gives global economy a human face. Each woman‘€™s personal story explains neoliberal globalization, how it is gendered, and how it impacts Haiti. And while Poto Mitan offers an in-depth understanding of Haiti, its focus on women‘€™s subjugation, worker exploitation, poverty, and resistance demonstrates these are global struggles. Initiated by the subjects themselves, Poto Mitan aims to inspire solidarity and activism to end injustice in the global economy.

This event is open to the public.

Sponsored by Newcomb College Institute, Newcomb-Tulane College, Payson Center for International Development, the Freeman School of Business, the Stone Center for Latin American Studies and TULASO (Tulane Undergraduate Latin American Studies Organization).
