During 2013, Michaela Schwartz '13 and Emily Rea '13 have created Oral History Documentary about the Women's Studies Program and the Gender Studies Department, a documentary film that examines the role of a gender studies program at a women's college. The film documents the development of the program  through the context of political and social climates and see how it has subsequently influenced the campus.
 
Over the course of  interviews with seven MHC faculty members, two administrators and one alum integral to the program and department, the project has grown to encompass a wide variety of issues from interdepartmental politics, to the tension between activism and academic theory and the power of semantics.
