UFV`s Faculty and Staff Association is bringing Bif Naked to UFV’s Abbotsford campus for International Women’s Day on Fri, Mar 8.

The day starts at 3 p.m. with a screening in room B101 of Miss Representation, a 90-minute documentary about body image and media, that shows how mainstream media undermines and sexualizes women, skewing how both men and women see women, and contributing to  the under-representation of women in American politics and business. The documentary will be followed by refreshments in the cafeteria, room B105, at 4:30 p.m., with Bif Naked, speaking at 5 p.m.

The event is free to students, with valid student ID and $10 for faculty, staff and community members. Tickets available at the Faculty and Staff Association office, B377, and at Chilliwack and Abbotsford campus libraries.

Bif Naked is sponsored by the FSA in partnership with the UFV President’s Office, University Advancement Office, Centre for Indo-Canadian Studies, School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Faculty of Professional Studies, Fraser Valley Women’s Coalition, Abbotsford Police Department, and the Canadian Federation of University Women—Abbotsford.
