On Wednesday, Nov. 7, there will be a screening of the documentary "A Hero for Daisy," at 8 p.m. in the Geneva Room as part of the Title IX Film Series.

"A Hero for Daisy" is film about Title IX pioneer and two-time Olympian Chris-Ernst, who galvanized her rowing team to storm the Yale athletic director's office in 1976 protesting the lack of athletic facilities for women.

WS Athletics is pleased to announce a Fall Film Series which celebrates and explores the beginnings of Title IX and its impact on women in sport. We hope that you will promote this to your classes and departments and join us for any or all of the film screenings and discussions. The Series is moderated by Amy Forbes, Centennial Center for Leadership and Sandra Chu, William Smith Rowing.
