St. Ambrose presents gender documentary Tuesday: A documentary by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Debra Chasnoff will be screened 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 3, in the Galvin Fine Arts Center at St. Ambrose University.

“Straightlaced – How Gender’s Got Us All Tied Up” features candid interviews with teens and young adults about the pressures of gender and sexuality. The free, public screening will be followed by a discussion led by Chasnoff.

Chasnoff, who will be on campus for a weeklong visit as St. Ambrose’s 2015 Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow, is a nationally recognized champion of using film as an organizing tool for social justice campaigns. The founding director of national media, education and advocacy organization GroundSpark, Chasnoff is co-creator of the Respect for All Project, which produces media and professional development resources designed to help prevent prejudice among young people.

This event is part of St. Ambrose University's Exploring Gender, a yearlong series investigating the social construction of gender through the arts, sciences and humanities.
