Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide Screening

To kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Feminist Action League is hosting a screening of the documentary film, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.   Half the Sky is based on the book of the same title written by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. 

The documentary , as PBS describes, is “filmed in 10 countries, the series follows Nicholas Kristof and celebrity activists America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union and Olivia Wilde 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.”  

Donations to benefit survivors of domestic and sexual violence will also be collected at the screening.  Feminist Action League is holding a donation drive for Cedar Valley Friends of the Family and will be collecting NEW sweat pants, t-shirts, bras, underwear, and socks.  Donations can also be dropped off in the Women’s and Gender Studies office (Sabin 225) from 9:00am to 4:00pm throughout the month of October.
