benzie area women’s history project

See a list of programs and participants since 1983.

For its 36th year, the Benzie Area Women’s History Project (BAWHP) will be collaborating with the Benzie Area Zonta Club for a program in April.

On Tuesday, April 10, at 7 p.m. at the Garden Theater in Frankfort, the two groups will present a documentary film, directed by Sofia Cruz.

mosaic Join us for a screening of Little Stones, an award-winning documentary that unites the personal narratives of four women around the world using art to create positive change in their communities. From a graffiti artist speaking out against domestic violence in the favelas of Brazil to a dancer rehabilitating sex-trafficking survivors in India, each of these women is contributing a stone to the mosaic of the women’s movement through their art.

“I always feel the movement is a sort of mosaic. Each of us puts in one little stone.”—Alice Paul, Women’s Rights Activist
