Sarah Fogderud, co-owner and controller of A.W. Research Laboratories in Brainerd, will speak about challenges and joys of being a woman in a non-traditional workforce role at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Brainerd Public Library.

The program is a kick-off to the American Association of University of Women Brainerd Lakes Area Branch's fall activities all of which are open to the public. AAUW's mission is advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.

Other events the branch will participate in include Central Lakes College's Community Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 10. Members will provide information about AAUW's mission.

The branch also will co-sponsor with CLC two free screenings of the movie, "Iron Jawed Angels" Oct. 25, as part of their "Get Out the Vote" efforts. One showing will be 12-2:30 p.m. and the other from 6-8:30 p.m. Both will be shown in Chalberg Theater.

The movie tells the true story of Alice Paul and Lucy Burns putting their lives at risk during the women's suffrage movement to help American women win the right to vote. After seeing this film, viewers will most probably reassess taking the right to vote for granted.
