Film screening: "Half the Sky"

Location: Campus Center Room 306

The Women's Center proudly presents a screening of "Half the Sky": Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. It was filmed in 10 countries and follows Kristof, WuDunn, and celebrity activists on a journey to tell the stories of inspiring, courageous individuals.

Across the globe oppression is being confronted, and real meaningful solutions are being fashioned through health care, education, and economic empowerment for women and girls. The linked problems of sex trafficking and forced prostitution, gender-based violence, and maternal mortality — which needlessly claim one woman every 90 seconds — present to us the single most vital opportunity of our time: the opportunity to make a change. All over the world women are seizing this opportunity.

Everyone is welcome to join us in the film screening with discussion and light refreshments to follow. This event is free and open to the general public!
