Film Screening: Rise of the Wahine: Champions of Title IX
Rise of the Wahine: Champions of Title IX
Sunday, March 24, 2019; McCoy Studio Theater; 3:00 pm
This incredible true story of the rise of women in America will educate and inspire the next generation of leaders. "Rise of the Wahine: Champions of Title IX" is an edge-of-your-seat David vs. Goliath tale of how culture is transformed and how to rise above the challenges in your life and bring an end to injustice in the world around you. It reveals how, in the years following the Civil Rights movement and the passage of Title IX in 1972, a headstrong African American female coach, the first Asian American U.S. congresswoman, and the team captain of a rag-tag female volleyball team battled discrimination from the halls of Washington D.C. to the dusty volleyball courts of the University of Hawaii, fighting for the rights of young women to play sports. Above all, the film reveals how change-makers overcome injustice with wisdom, an innovative spirit, and without becoming victims to their circumstances.
The screening is presented as part of Women’s History Month and will be followed by a discussion facilitated by Dean Kaneshiro, director/writer/producer of the film. Also participating is the film’s coproducer, Ryan Kalei Tsuji, and independent documentary filmmaker, Kimberlee Bassford.
