Is Mad Max: Fury Road Sexist?
Texas Tech will be holding an installment of the Sexism: Cinema series featuring Mad Max: Fury Road. This will be held February 1st from 7-9:30p.m. at the Alamo Drafthouse.
After the movie Texas Tech Professor Dr. Rob Peaslee will hold a discussion on the movie as a whole and how sexism applies.
From Texas Tech:
“Fifty plus years ago, the term “sexism” was coined. In light of this historical marker, Alamo Drafthouse and TTU invite you to a film series which considers how sexism is embedded, endorsed, and/or challenged in the cinema. How far have we come? How far do we have to go? We have selected films with female protagonists to view and discuss at Alamo Drafthouse, Lubbock. The films will be followed by a 30-minute discussion led by TTU faculty members and expert guest speakers.”
Admission is $3 for everyone and can be purchased in advance or the day of the show. For more information, click here.
