April 12, 2017 ( Chicago ) — Announcing the screening of two recently made films that address creative women's movements: The Women's March and Women Mobilized for Change, followed by a panel discussion titled "Women Rise Up / How WE Mobilize; Mothers and Daughters, Intersectionality and an historic movement remembered. How creative movements create change."

The film Women's March ( 15min - by Jess Mattison, Laurie Little and Theresa Campagna of Luminist Films ) is a reflection on the journey between Chicago and DC, connecting voices of hope, empowerment and intersectionality during the 2017 Women's March. Two teams documented the march simultaneously in the two cities as women everywhere went on a journey to connect with their feminist roots. Focusing on intersectionality, mothers and daughters from every strata of the country reflect on the work that is to come for the women's movement and how we can mobilize for change.

In the film Women Mobilized for Change 1966 to 1974 ( 26 min - by Carron Little, Xyla Gatilao, Ife Olatunji, Laurie Little, Carrie Ruckel, and WMC Collective with original members Norma Flynn and Roberta Wilson ), the intersection of the Civil Rights Movement and Women's Activism is revealed in this untold story from 1966 questioning how far have we come? Women Mobilized for Change was a collective of women who came together in 1966 from diverse socio-economic areas of Chicagoland and worked tirelessly for eight years to effect change. The film tells their untold story comparing the facts of segregation in Chicago today. Includes performance art happenings that shed light on the movement and where we are today with a focus on housing.
