To Kid or Not to Kid: Film Screening & Discussion

Sponsored by the Department of Sociology.

Friday, February 1
Wells Conference Center
3:00 pm

Film screening followed by a Q&A and panel discussion with Maxine Trump, director of To Kid or Not to Kid; Amy Blackstone, University of Maine professor and author of the forthcoming book Childfree by Choice; Andrea Irwin, Executive Director of Mabel Wadsworth Center; and Jessica Wade, host of the popular Facebook page The Childfree Choice. Refreshments and a cash bar will be available following the discussion

From the award-winning director of the New York Times Critics’ Pick Musicwood, To Kid Or Not To Kid is a new film that aims to dispel the myth that living childfree is weird, selfish, or somehow wrong. In a world where women are threatened for speaking openly about living childfree, two women, from different generations, search for ways to support each other in making the decision to live without kids.
