Chuck McCutcheon and David Mark, authors of the new book “Dog Whistles, Walk-Backs and Washington Handshakes: Decoding the Jargon, Slang and Bluster of American Political Speech,” will give a reading and signing. “Dog Whistles” is a collection of more than 200 words and expressions that seeks to humorously explain how politicians really talk — how “my good friend” is often a mortal enemy and why “I want to spend more time with my family” is the wrong way for someone in elected office to say why they’re stepping down.

Dear Mr. McCaffrey,
Please put the following announcement in your “Arlington Notes” section for September 11.
Thank you!
Sara F. Anderson, President
Arlington Branch, AAUW

Women’s Education World-wide. What are the issues? Why does it matter?
In many countries, girls face numerous, immense obstacles when they attempt to become educated. Early marriage, cultural paradigms, poor facilities, geographic isolation are major obstacles; most of them flow directly from being poor — which means not only can they not afford school, but they need to work to help support their families.
The film Girl Risingfollows the life stories of nine girls from the developing world, who struggle every day for freedom, education and a voice in their home countries of Cambodia, Haiti, Nepal, Ethiopia, India, Peru, Sierra Leone and Afghanistan. Director Richard Robbins, in an interview with Christine Horansky of the Huffington Post said that, “to me the common thread for the girls in the film, was that they each believed (against all evidence) that they deserved more. They just had a deep sense of their own power and potential. For many of the girls we profiled, they often found an expression for their hope and will in some kind of art — poetry, dance, art, song.”
The Arlington Branch of AAUW will show parts of Girl Rising on Tuesday, September 16 at 7:00 pm in the Patrick Henry Elementary School Library, 701 S Highland St, Arlington. The school shares the parking lot with the Career Center and the Columbia Pike Public Library
We will discuss the film after viewing it.
