"Rise of the Wahine: Champions of Title IX" is an edge-of-your-seat David vs. Goliath tale revealing the incredible untold story of the rise of women in America...
In the years following the Civil Rights movement and the passage of Title IX in 1972, Dr. Donnis Thompson (a headstrong African-American female coach), Patsy Mink (the first Asian-American U.S. congresswoman), and Beth McLachlin (the team captain of a rag-tag female volleyball team), battled discrimination from the halls of Washington D.C. to the dusty volleyball courts of the University of Hawaii, fighting for the rights of young women to play sports.
Join us for the screening and a discussion with Marilyn Moniz-Kahoohanohano (former UH student athlete & Assistant Athletics Director, UH Manoa). Light refreshements will be provided.
