In honor of Women’s History Month, the Riverhead Anti-Bias Task Force is hosting a free screening of “On the Basis of Sex,” the critically acclaimed film about Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The film gets its title from the court case that young Ruth and her husband Harry take on in an effort to end unfair discrimination in place “on the basis of sex.”

The screening will be immediately followed by an audience discussion led by social activist and political organizer Lillian Clayman. Clayman, who made history of her own serving three terms as the first female and youngest person ever elected mayor of Camden, Connecticut, currently teaches at SUNY Old Westbury, for Opportunities Long Island and the Long Island Federation of Labor.

The Riverhead Anti-Bias Task Force Women’s History Month event will be held at the Riverhead Senior Center on Shade Tree Lane, Thursday, March 28 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The event is free to the public.

The Riverhead Anti-Bias Task Force is a non-partisan group of citizens, government officials, law enforcement representatives, educators and clergy. Its mission is to address prejudice, encourage understanding and promote unity for the greater good of the Riverhead community. Its members are appointed by the Riverhead Town Board.
