It's the merry month of March, so it's time for the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender and Women's Studies' annual showcase of girls on film. SBAI and WXXI will host "Women & Power: Women's History Film Series," with 10 stories about women across many cultures, to be screened at the Little Theatre (240 East Ave.) from March 22 to March 28.

Among this year's features are "Invisible War" (Friday, March 22, 7 p.m.), about the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military; "Boxing Girls of Kabul" (Saturday, March 23, 1 p.m.), which follows a group of young Afghan women who strive to become world-class boxers; "The Price of Sex" (Tuesday, March 26, 7 p.m.), about Eastern European sex trafficking ad abuse; and "Water Children" (Wednesday. March 27, 7 p.m.), which explores the cycle of life through the eyes of a Japanese-Dutch pianist.

Tickets for each film cost $5, and many of the screenings will be followed by a talk-back with a panel discussion. For more information, call 258-0400 or visit thelittle.org.
