International Women’s Day Celebration
March 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$15
Join us this International Women’s Day for an evening of film viewing, desserts and a panel discussion to ignite the change needed to put an end to the oppression of women and girls worldwide. A cash bar will be made available.
Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide is a four-hour series shot in 10 countries: Cambodia, Kenya, India, Sierra Leone, Somaliland, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Liberia and the U.S. Inspired by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn’s book, the documentary series introduces women and girls who are living under some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable — and fighting bravely to change them. Traveling with intrepid reporter Nicholas Kristof and A-list celebrity advocates America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union and Olivia Wilde, the film reflects viable and sustainable options for empowerment and offers an actionable blueprint for transformation.
