Doors open at 6:30pm.

Join Stanford PACS in collaboration with Spark, the Clayman Institute for Gender Research and CDDRL’s Program on Social Entrepreneurship for a special evening screening of the newly released fi lm, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, a story set in 19th century China and centered on the lifelong friendship between two girls who develop their own secret code as a way to contend with the rigid cultural norms imposed on women.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with Director Wayne Wang; Producers Wendi Murdoch and Florence Sloan; and Author Lisa See. This program will also launch a new Stanford initiative to facilitate an intergenerational conversation on the women’s movement. As such, the Q&A will focus on a historical framing of the women’s movement, the role of culture in shaping feminism and the ways in which leadership within the movement is transferred between generations
