CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The next session of 'Women on Fridays,' a video and discussion series offered by the University of Northern Iowa Women's Studies program, will be at noon, Friday, Oct. 17, in Baker 161. Discussion will follow the viewing of 'You Don't Know Dick: The Courageous Hearts of Transsexual Men,' a documentary that explores the stories of six female-to-male transsexuals.

The video discussions, said Susan Hill, director of the Undergraduate Program in Women's Studies, 'are about exploring new and provocative perspectives on gender and sexuality that challenge our assumptions and help us better understand the world around us.'

The next film in the series will be 'Rachel on Stage in Gaia,' a documentary about performance artist Rachel Rosenthal. The films are free and open to the public. Those attending may bring a lunch; dessert will be provided.
