Film screening and feature a special Q & A.

She was a flag girl who happened to walk into the Long Beach, California, boathouse just as women were being accepted. And inside that boathouse were the best men’s double scullers in the world – and one of them had just begun coaching women. She was the unlikeliest candidate to change the world of rowing. She had never been a competitive athlete. But inside her was a fierce drive to succeed that would propel her not just to the top of U.S. women’s rowing – but to challenge the very best in the world.

One person can change a sport, a country, a culture. In an era ripe for change, Joan Lind was responsible for the tectonic shift in an all-male sport.
