                                                  “A League of Our Own”

Produced by Lisa Shufro and directed by John Hartwell,  the film traces the first sixty years of League of Women Voters in Westport, examining both the impact of the League on the Town and the empowerment of women through the League.  Topics covered include the formation of the Town charter and RTM, the gradual movement of League members into positions of power in local government, and the influence of the League during controversies such as Project Concern.  After the showing the filmmakers will host a Q&A.
