Women are invited to be part of a special Red Tent experience on July 31 when filmmaker Isadora Leidenfrost presents a screening of her documentary “Things We Don’t Talk About,” and leads a discussion afterward.
The documentary tells the stories of women reclaiming their truth and their voice as changers in the world. The women in the film remember, listen and discover how they can meet the needs of their communities by reawakening their own voices.
The program will be at 6 p.m. at the Community House of Flossmoor Community Church, 2218 Hutchison Rd.
In the book “The Red Tent,” author Anita Diamant creates a world around women in Biblical times by setting the story in a red tent. This fictional enclosure gives the characters a sense of belonging to the great sisterhood. It is a precious space in which women share their intimate feelings, bask in the knowledge of others and develop a true sense of belonging.
Today the Red Tent Movement is inspiring women to share their own stories and concerns through conversations that women don’t typically talk about in other venues. Flossmoor event organizer Kalie Ebel said it is meant to be a time “to come together as a strong community of women celebrating what is means to be a woman.”
