EMERGENCY CALL BOXES BEING INSTALLED

New Technology Improving Campus Safety

Although the "smart classrooms" get most of the acclaim, smaller, simpler advancements like the new wireless emergency phone stations also go a long way to making campus life even better. Eighteen solar-powered call boxes are being placed around campus in addition to seven going into the South Parking Structure. With the push of a button, the caller can summon the campus sheriff. The solar-powered call boxes will work rain or shine thanks to their ability to store energy from the estimated 275 sunny days here in southern California.

SCREENING:

"Afghan Women - A History of Struggle"
TUES, OCT 27 |  2:00pm - 4:00pm  |  WLAC Fine Arts Auditorium

Filmmaker Kathleen Foster will be in attendance.

The West Los Angeles College Social Justice Alliance will host documentary filmmaker Kathleen Foster, screening her 2007 film AFGHAN WOMEN: A HISTORY OF STRUGGLE, in the West LA College Fine Arts Auditorium.

This timely documentary dramatizes the tale of a group of remarkable women, how their courage and commitment to change their lives and country has passed from one generation to the next. Their disturbing and amazing stories reflect the recent history of Afghanistan during a quarter-century of cataclysm: from proxy war to civil war, from a Soviet-backed regime to the oppressive rule of the Taliban, and to U.S. military intervention and the current sway of regional warlords and general instability.  Afghan Women: A History of Struggle, is a feature-length documentary that captures the resilience and courage of a group of remarkable women who risk their lives daily to stand up for their rights.

 

 

 

  Rare archival footage illustrates the disturbing and amazing stories of their struggle for equality, reflected in the history of this Central Asian country during the past quarter-century of political turmoil.

Born in Britain, Kathleen Foster has been a New York-based photojournalist and documentary filmmaker since the 1970's.  She studied photography at the New School for Social Research with Lisette Model. Her photos appeared in publications such as the New York Times, Scholastic Magazines, Time, Village Voice, Food and Wine Magazine, Fortune Magazine, Institutional Investor and Z Magazine. Her work is represented in the collections of the Chase Manhattan Bank, The Museum of the City of New York, York College and private collectors.
