“Detroit Women Speak” explores issues of gender, environmentalism, feminism, place, race and what it means to be a leader. In the film we meet fifteen women, ranging in age from 7 to 70, who all grew up in and currently live, work and play in the city of Detroit. The women discuss their trials and triumphs in leadership to defend the place they call home.
Diana Copeland, filmmaker, is the Co-Director of the East Michigan Environmental Action Council, a non-profit providing environmental justice leadership and civic engagement training to residents of Southeast Michigan.
Co-sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Studies program and Women in Learning and Leadership.
