LWVADC Movie Matinee: "Fly With Me" - 2 PM

Movie projector graphic


The League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties is proud to present a free viewing of the film "Fly With Me" in-person.

Don't miss seeing this documentary!

It's about the history of flight attendants. They wanted to see the world and ended up changing it. Over the years they worked for equal rights, fair pay, workers' rights, and gender parity.

Fly With Me tells the story of the pioneering young women who became flight attendants at a time when single women were unable to order a drink, eat alone in a restaurant, own a credit card or get a prescription for birth control. Becoming a “stewardess,” as they were called, offered unheard-of opportunities for travel, glamour, adventure and independence. Although often maligned as feminist sellouts, these women were on the frontlines of the battle to assert gender equality and transform the workplace. Featuring firsthand accounts, personal stories and a rich archival record, the film tells the lively and important but neglected history of the women who changed the world while flying it.

The film's running time is approximately 106 minutes long and rated PG-13.

For more information about the film, see the
  IMDB page.

We look forward to seeing you there and we still recommend the use of masks for everyone's safety.

All League members and their guests are invited. No registration is required, but space is limited. We ask that you RSVP by emailing us with your name and email address to
  RSVP email.

In your email RSVP, please let us know which League you belong to, if you are a member. And please specify TUSKEGEE on the email subject line.
