Inspired by the best-selling book from Pulitzer-prize winning journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, Half the Sky LIVE will feature musical performances, celebrity commentary, and the world premiere of Woineshet, a powerful short film directed by Academy Award® Winner Marisa Tomei.
With Half the Sky LIVE, audiences can watch the pages of Half the Sky come to life onscreen as Woineshet chronicles the story of a teenaged Ethiopian girl who struggles with and ultimately triumphs over sexual violence and discrimination. To learn more about the film, find your local theater, and purchase tickets go to Half the Sky Live (www.halftheskylive.com.) This is showing in Mobile!
- In honor of International Women's Day, CARE will present Half the Sky LIVE on Thursday, March 4, 2010 at 7:30p.m., in select movie theaters nationwide.
- Volunteers with older girls (13-18) can celebrate International Women's Day by taking them to watch Half The Sky LIVE. CARE, in partnership with Girl Scouts, will be providing an accompanying discussion guide for leaders to use for post discussion.
SUBMIT STORIES FOR TICKETS TO THE EVENT!
Thanks to CARE, GSUSA has 20 FREE double passes to issue to volunteers who plan to attend the event at their local participating theater (in Mobile). Volunteers can simply submit their stories on how they are spreading the word on global girls' issues within their troop or in the community. We know our volunteers are amazing and we would love to hear it! Please submit stories to firstname.lastname@example.org. The first 20 volunteers to do so will receive a complimentary ticket (one ticket per theater.)
