from the Second Wave to the Tidal Wave

Presented by The Midcoast Women’s Collective and Judy Groth Associates

A documentary film screening followed by panel discussion.

from the Second Wave to the Tidal Wave is the story of the filmmaker through the stories of three contemporaries who came of age and went off to college just in time to be swept up into the Second Wave Feminist Movement.  The passage of of landmark legislation of 1960’s outlawing  discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin unlocked the doors to social equality. Now all they had to do was open them.

After decades of fighting for equality, the 2016 presidential election promised the payoff for the warriors the Second Wave as they anticipated not just electing the first woman president, but also one of their own.

Pam Maus, producer and director, considers herself an activist, feminist, and filmmaker. As a member of the Second Wave Feminist Movement, she made the film to celebrate her cohorts in the Movement and to provide history for younger generations about why the women’s movement was about so much more than “just electing a women.” Pam, an Arkansas native, moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts after college and now resides in Owls Head, Maine.

The Midcoast Women’s Collective and Judy Groth Associates  will sponsor a screening of the film followed by a panel discussion.  The program is part of the Collective Voices series that provides opportunities for area women of all ages to find and strengthen their individual and shared voices.,

The panel will be moderated by Professor Jennifer Scanlon, director of the Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies Program at Bowdoin College. The intergenerational panel includes Nancy Wanderer, one the women featured in the film and professor emeritus, University of Maine Law School; Kathleen Fleury, managing editor of Down East Magazine; and Myla Fernald, a junior at Oceanside High School, Rockland.  The discussion provides the opportunity to discuss feminism both to unique generations and the common issues that cut across them and the challenges for achieving equality for all marginalized populations.

Everyone is invited to the Fog Bar & Cafe immediately after the panel discussion.
