LIONESS and Women's History Month

March was an incredibly busy time for us with screenings around the country. We started out in Florida at Fort Lauderdale's landmark Cinema Paradiso and ended with four of the Lionesses from the film joining us on Capitol Hill on March 31st (see below entries). Some of the highlights in between include screenings at the Pittsburgh VA's Women Veteran Health Care Conference, the West Virginia Cultural Center, the Female Faces of War Conference at Battleship Cove in Massachusetts and the University of Texas in Austin.

Each year I manage to see a couple [of films] that I can’t get out of my head. This year one of the films was Lioness.
