The Palace Theater is hosting an important event for women and girls worldwide next week.
All are welcome and encouraged to attend the free screening of Half the Sky, a documentary that raises awareness for the difficult challenges women and girls across the globe are facing and that offers a plan for action.
"The film reflects viable and sustainable options for empowerment and offers an actionable blueprint for transformation," according to the Half the Sky Movement.
Shot in ten countries: Cambodia, Kenya, India, Sierra Leone, Somaliland, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Liberia and the U.S.; Half the Sky follows NY Times reporter Nicholas Kristof and celebrity advocates as they meet brave women who share their stories of desperate circumstances.
The film, which runs just under two-hours, will screen on March 26 at 7 p.m. The screening is hosted in partnership with New Hampshire Public Television.
The event will also feature special guest speaker Marsha Wallace, president and co-founder of Dining for Women, who will explain how her organization and the Half the Sky Movement are helping women to fight for change.
