Mankato, Minn. -- Minnesota State University, Mankato's Violence Awareness and Response Program, Women's Center and Department of Gender and Women's Studies are hosting a film screening and discussion Thursday, Nov. 2 at 12:30 p.m. on campus in Ostrander Auditorium.

A description of the event is as follows:

"Jackson: A Film Screening and Discussion"

"With a single abortion clinic remaining in the state of Mississippi, the city of Jackson has become ground zero in the nation's battle over reproductive health-care. Jackson is an intimate portrait of the interwoven lives of three women in this town. Wrought with the racial and religious undertones of the Deep South, the lives of two women are deeply affected by the director of the local pro-life crisis pregnancy center and the movement she represents. A discussion with representatives from campus departments and community agencies will follow the film."
