Hunt PTO Update 1/9/12

Hey There Hunt Families - Hope to see families turn out for the PTO meeting on Thursday.  Have a great week!

"Miss Representation" Film and Panel Discussion-Tuesday, January 17, 2012
The Vermont Girls Collaborative is hosting a free and open to the public showing of the film "Miss Representation" followed by a panel discussion on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at 6:30pm. to 9:30pm. at The Savoy Theatre, 26 Main Street, Montpelier, VT.
The film's goals are to start a cross-generational movement to shift the cultural mindset of communities, interrupt and stop patterns of sexism, change the way women and girls are represented in the media and ensure a tipping point that will lead to gender parity in leadership throughout the U.S.
After the film, panelists Donna McAllister of the Vermont Department of Education, Bethany Pombar of the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence and Kelly Walsh of the Vermont Works for Women will discuss the portrayal of women in the media, what this means here in Vermont/New Hampshire and what positive steps each person can take to combat these messages.
The Vermont Girls Collaborative is a network of programs across Vermont working to leverage the power of girls' programs through sharing resources, ideas and relationships, promote girl's' well-being and social equity, expand the capacity of girls' programs to meet the needs of Vermont Girls. AAUW Vermont is a member of the Vermont Girls Collaborative.
