WMHT, the Center for Women and Government and Civil Society and Holding Our Own invite you to a Salon Screening of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.
The screening will feature a 40 minute overview of the recently broadcast four hour mini-series, focusing on six key issues: healthcare, education, economic empowerment, sex trafficking and forced prostitution, gender-based violence, and maternal mortality. Following the screening, join us for a critical discussion of both the issues raised by the film and various approaches, strategies, and solutions offered by the filmmakers.
The event will be free and open to the public. Additional details and a formal invitation will be released closer to the event. For further information, please contact, Amanda Lester, WMHT Community Engagement Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org or (518)880-3553.
