For this month’s meeting, the mentees watched the film Hidden Figures. This film
captured a visionary trio that crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. Throughout the movie, the girls showed multiple expressions.
Later we grabbed a bite to eat and discussed how the mentees felt about the movie. To describe the movie, the girls used the words "inspiring," "motivational," "teachable," and "empowering." Mentee Destiny Wilson stated “I loved Dorothy’s passion to stick together and not leave anyone behind”.
Some mentees also felt that women today don’t fight as hard for their rights as women of the 1950’s and 1960’s. Mentee Tameisha Lasane said “Women nowadays act like they don’t care as much as they should."
Summing up the discussion, the mentees thought watching them film was a great learning experience, and that women can do anything they put their mind to.
