General Meeting
By Dagmar Gorman
Each month, IWAP conducts a General Meeting where current and prospective members meet to engage in discussion and listen to  presentations about the culture, community and country where we reside. Forthcoming IWAP activities and programs are highlighted and any other matters of importance reviewed. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and visit with other IWAP members. Refreshments will be available for your enjoyment. Additional information can be found on the IWAP Events calendar. 
 
IWAP General Meeting, held monthly, provides an overview of forthcoming IWAP activities and events. Guest speakers share information about the culture, community and country we call home. Have a relaxing and enjoyable morning in discussion and engagement with IWAP members. Refreshments provided.
 
At our NOVEMBER meeting we will have the pleasure to welcome Joseph Weintraub, Lecturer at Anglo American University, presenting the subject: The Bechdel Test: Viewing film with a Feminist Lens.
 
Women comprise leading character roles in roughly 35-40% of films. In 1985, cartoonist Alison Bechdel first mentioned the test as a measure of how women are (mis)represented in films in one of her cartoons. Joseph will be discussing how films are made in general, the state of women working in films, and how women are portrayed in them.
 
Joseph Weintrub has a Master's degree in Applied Linguistics and Bachelor's degree in Foreign Languages. He also works in the film industry as a dialogue coach, actor, and producer. Using his Master's degree in Linguistics, private study, and professional experience, he has developed a unique approach to acting and speaking on film which helps actors develop their confidence in speaking a new language or accent.
 
Refreshments and savories will be served and we will have time to socialize from 09:30 until 10:00 and after the presentation.

We look forward to seeing you there!
