March 4, 3-5pm in MLIB 172(CCLC)
In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman's value and power lie in her youth, beauty and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader.
Join the Cross-Cultural Leadership Center on Monday, March 4, 3-5PM as we watch the film Miss Representation that explores how women are represented in today's media. A facilitated discussion will occur at the conclusion of this event.
A Million Pieces Art Project
March 5, 1-3pm in MLIB 172(CCLC)
No one woman is the same. We are made up of a million different pieces that include our passions, personalities, talents and so much more. The Million Pieces Art project provides women with the opportunity to reflect on the many aspects that make up each individual woman and recognizes there can never truly be "one type" of woman.
Join the Cross-Cultural Leadership Center on Tuesday, March 5, 1-3PM in Meriam Library 172 as we embrace the differences and uniqueness of each woman. Please bring pictures from home to add to your art project.

This event will take place Thursday, March 7, 6-8PM in the Cross-Cultural Leadership Center in Meriam Library 172. Participants MUST preregister by Tuesday, March 5 at 5pm in the CCLC.
March 8, 3pm-7pm in Tehama 118
For many individuals, growing up included spending time in the kitchen sharing and listening to the stories and experiences of others. The kitchen was a place where everyone was welcome, it was comfortable and it was a place where life happened. Historically, the kitchen has been known as a place for women only and in today's society, women are fighting the limitations of this image to recognize that the kitchen is much more than cooking; it is also the stories passed on generation to generation, it is the place for mothers and their daughters to bond and share their story.
The Cross-Cultural Leadership Center presents Kitchen Stories which aims to recreate synergy often found in kitchens around the world. It is an opportunity for women and men on our campus to come together and share their personal stories within the context of a kitchen. Students will have the opportunity to learn new recipes while also learning the stories that come with them. Join us for a day of Kitchen Stories on March 10, 10am to 4pm (location to be announced). Pre-registration is required in the CCLC and a submission of $5.00 to cover the cost of food supplies. Limited spots are available! We hope you can join us for this meaningful event!
