Power, Gender, and Hollywood

Curious about the power structure of Hollywood, its history and the ramifications of such a history?  Wondering how to change the power dynamics that continue to undermine women?  Come chat with Dr. Jacqueline N. Sadashige, who has lectured on such subjects as Feminist Theory and Power, Gender, and Hollywood at Penn and Drexel.

Jacqueline Sadashige earned a BA in Fine Arts and English from Amherst College, an MA in English Literature from Indiana University, and an MA and PhD in Classical Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. She currently teaches for the Women and Gender Studies Program at Drexel University and the College of Liberal and Professional Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Although much of her research in the past has revolved around issues of race, gender, and representation in popular culture and the media, Jacqui has recently begun pursuing an additional advanced degree in the Biology of Environmental Conservation through Miami University's innovative Global Field Program. When not in the classroom, Jacqui manages social media for the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival (PAAFF) and The Women's Film Festival (TWFF). A fitness enthusiast, she also teaches yoga and a variety of exercise formats at several area gyms.
