MHU's annual Law Day will be Thursday, September 14, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. in Peterson Conference Room in Blackwell Hall. This year's event will feature Mars Hill alum Jacqueline Miner ('16) who is now a second year law student at William and Mary Law School. Political Science professor Heather Hawn will provide information about the law school application process, the particular challenges of law school, and the legal profession.
EQUAL MEANS EQUAL offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. From workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system, the film makes a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment. The showing is a part of a series of showings in the statewide Campus4ERA project, sponsored by NC4ERA: a project of NC NOW and the ERA-NC Alliance along with local university partners. The Campus4ERA movement is dedicated to raising awareness of the ERA and educating students on this frontline issue of the feminist movement. This program is sponsored by MHU's Women's Studies Program and the Political Science Department as part of our Constitution Week activities.
