The film “14 Women” to be shown Nov. 7 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

“14 WOMEN” is a film about the 14 women who held seats in the Senate after the 2006 election.  “Between 1789 and 2006, only 35 of the 1,875 people who were elected to serve in the United States Senate were women, so 2006 became a banner year when 14 women held seats in the Senate (and two more were elected in the mid-term elections held that year). Director Mary Lambert and producers Nicole Boxer and Sharon Oreck profile these women who’ve risen to the highest echelons of power and service in America in this documentary. 14 Women offers an inside portrait of women in politics” (Mark Deming, NY Times).

The topic is still very current. Today, only 17 out of 100 senators are women.  And, in the House of Representatives, only 16.6% are women.
