We have been graciously invited to join the USC Chapter of Globemed to participate in this event. The aim of Globemed is to strengthen the movement for global health equity by empowering students and communities to work together to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world.
They (and a few other agencies) are sponsoring the showing of the Documentary called Half the Sky. The event will take place in the Theatre room of the 650 Lincoln Apartment Building.
Come out and join us at this informative and engaging event in honor of World Day of Social Justice.
We are honored to participate in this event and hope to see you there.
Here is a brief summary of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, a multi-part documentary series based on the bestselling book by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, aired on PBS October 1st & 2nd, 2012, internationally in 2013.
The series follows Kristof and celebrity activists America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union and Olivia Wilde as they travel throughout the developing world to introduce women and girls who are living under some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable—and fighting bravely to change them. With an introduction by George Clooney and incisive analysis led by WuDunn and a host of other experts including Hillary Clinton, Desmond Tutu, Madeleine Albright and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the series features intimate, dramatic and immediate stories of struggle that reflect viable and sustainable options for empowerment and offer an actionable blueprint for transformation.
