JWU Film Series: HER Story The Founding Mothers of JWU

In observance of Women’s History Month, join the JWU Gender Equity Center, JWU Providence BRIDGE CENTER, and UIB: Campus Events in learning about the founding mothers of OUR community in the film screening of:


HER Story: The Founding Mothers of Johnson & Wales University


The film, by JWU faculty Marian Gagnon, documents the story of Gertrude Johnson and Mary Wales. A story that has been silenced for too long and recounts their passion and bravery founding a school, before they had the right to vote.
