HAMMOND -- High spirited, indomitable,
risk taker ... it’s the essence of Louisiana women captured in “Woman’s
Work,” a one-hour tribute to women produced by the Southeastern Louisiana
University Public Information Office for the Southeastern Channel.
The show, written and produced
by Cheryl Settoon and edited by Steve Kleyle, will premier at 7 p.m. Thursday,
May 1, and will be rebroadcast at the same time on Sunday, May 4, and Tuesday,
May 6, on Charter Communications Channel 18, Southeastern’s educational
“Women mentoring women is a thread
running throughout the program,” said Settoon. The show was inspired by
the Southeastern Women Coalition’s celebration of March as Women’s History
Segments include June Mumme,
wife of Southeastern head football coach Hal Mumme, who talks candidly
about her battle with breast cancer and how her experience is helping save
lives; State Rep. Diane Winston’s report on the status of Louisiana women;
and critically acclaimed author Olympia Vernon, a Southeastern graduate,
who explains the surprising twist that propelled her from a criminal justice
major to a writer sought after by two New York publishing giants.
It also includes Louisiana’s
Ghost Stories, a series of dramatic monologues written and performed by
Southeastern students and faculty.
