The first installment of the 2012-2013 Community Cinema Series features Half the Sky. The Half the Sky movement is cutting across platforms to ignite the change needed to put an end to the oppression of women and girls worldwide, the defining issue of our time. Inspired by journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's book of the same name, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity brings together video, websites, games, blogs and other educational tools to not only raise awareness of women's issues, but to also provide concrete steps to fight these problems and empower women. Change is possible, and you can be part of the solution.
This program will feature two episodes from the Half the Sky documentary series, looking at girls' education in Vietnam and economic empowerment in Kenya. Stay after the film to learn about ways to get involved with local organizations serving women and girls at our mini Women's Action Fair.
