Tonight at the Stonybrook Cinemas, CARE the humanitarian organization dedicated to helping the worlds women, in partnership with Delta Airlines and the Meredith Corporation, is presenting a one night event inspired by the stories of the New York Times bestseller "Half The Sky" by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.

The event is being held in order to increase awareness of the programs and efforts to fight global poverty by empowering women, as well as to celebrate International Women's Day.

"Half the Sky," presents the stories of women around the world and argues for the investment into the health and autonomy of women as a means to battling global poverty.
