Women’s Center to host panel discussion on “Running in High Heels” March 8

In honor of International Women’s Day, the Women's Center will present a panel discussion of women who ran for office at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 8, in the Reed Keller Room in the Medical School (Please use south entrance).

Join us for an intriguing discussion with dynamic women who ran for office and the challenges they faced during their campaign. We will incorporate scenes from Maryann Breschard’s controversial documentary “Running in High Heels.” The film explores the influences of stereotypes in our society that will build the discussion of differences between men and women running for office. The event is free and everyone is welcome to attend.

Panel Participants:

  • Heidi Heitkamp-Former Attorney General of UND
  • Becca Grandstrand- Member of Grand Forks School Board
  • Amanda Bentow- Former UND Student Body Vice President
