Friends of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the activities, development and growth of the Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (or WGSS) at the University of Cincinnati, is presenting a film screening of the exhilarating documentary Derby Crazy Love at the University of Cincinnati's Tangeman University Center (TUC), Room 400C.

About the film: Derby Crazy Love accompanies Montreal’s top team, New Skids on the Block, on its exhilarating journey to regional championships, where they face off in a pitched battle against U.K. powerhouse, London Rollergirls, and reigning world champions, New York’s Gotham Girls. New Skids players and their British and U.S. rivals share stories of being powerful women in traditional sports, along with insights about derby’s recent rebirth, after decades of decline, as a vibrant, original expression of third wave feminism and Amazon-like physicality rooted in punk’s colorful DIY counterculture. Deftly tackling issues of masculinity, femininity, aggression, body image, queer identity and gender norms, this fast-paced yet reflective film captures the spirit of community, inclusiveness, and sisterhood at roller derby’s core today.

A panel discussion featuring members of the Cincinnati Rollergirls and light refreshments to follow. This awesome event is co-sponsored by the Cincinnati Rollergirls & The Cincinnati Women's Political Caucus.

Reservations: Please RSVP to Emily at or Barbara Myers for CWPC at

Directions: From Martin Luther King Blvd., go South on Jefferson Ave. Turn right onto Corry Blvd. Park in CCM garage and go to any elevator. There is a button clearly marked "walkway to TUC, ground level." Once you arrive at ground level you will come out right by the Starbucks. Walk up the hill a bit (stadium will be on left) and you will arrive at TUC. In TUC, click the 4th floor.
