Half the Road

There seems to be a new surge to promote women’s equality in the workplace. Women in the United States have represented 50 percent of the college graduates since the early 80’s, yet we lag salaries or holding the top spots at major corporations. Kathryn Bertine explores the in inequalities in women’s professional cycling in her documentary “Half the Road”. To help bring the film to our town, they have partnered with tug.com to enable us to create an event. If enough interest is shown, they’ll bring the documentary here. We can certainly do that!
