Members of student group Women's Law Society have been particularly busy in recent weeks, organizing events that spotlight challenging issues affecting women. In January, WLS helped bring Allyson Sonenshine, director of the Orange County Women's Health Project, to campus to speak about the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and with The Federalist Society co-hosted Cathy Young, columnist and book author, who discussed the "War on Women." On Feb. 5, WLS co-hosted with the Entertainment Law Society and OutLaw a screening of "The Invisible War," an Oscar-nominated documentary about the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military, followed by a discussion with filmmaker Kirby Dick and attorney Susan Burke, lead litigator of class-action suits against the U.S. military. This Friday and Saturday, Feb. 15-16, WLS stages UCI Law's second annual production of "The Vagina Monologues" to raise money for UCI Law's Family Violence Clinic. Watch this promotional video, produced by students Crystal Adams and Claire-Lise Kutlay, for more information about the show.
