Monmouth University’s School of Education International Education Committee is pleased to invite you to watch an international documentary, The Price of Free, by the Nobel prize winner Kailash Satyarthi. Please join us at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9, 2022 at Pollak Theater.
Education is the prerequisite for global development; learning with global perspectives requires us to make sense of educational systems and what global issues are happening in different parts of the world.
As part of this free event organized by the Monmouth University School of Education International Education Committee, we are going to view The Price of Free by Kailash Satyarthi. This documentary movie presents Kailash Satyarthi’s global civil society movement to rescue children from slavery in India.
The documentary showing begins at 2 p.m. in Pollak Theater. Immediately following the movie, there will be a discussion panel for us to talk about global issues as well as educational perspectives in other countries.
If you prefer to watch the documentary on your own time, you can join the discussion panel at 3:30 p.m. Please use the available link for streaming access to the documentary:

The personal is the political has been a part of the American vocabulary since at least the 1960s. Initially this argument was a source of identity and politics-making in the male public arena, not the female domestic space. Recently, this personal has been targeted in both Western Europe and North America where varying nationalist resurgences have resulted in anti-choice legislation. In response, some American states have passed reproductive-speciﬁc protections through legislative acts of their own. Against the backdrop of culture war, what does this renewed attention to female agency and their bodies say about our broken, polarized present? What prospects lay ahead for women? And more importantly, what perils?
