Join WITI @ A POWERFUL NOISE Live!
Celebrate International Women's Day 2009 with A POWERFUL NOISE Live
March 5, 2009 • Across the US
Plan to join our partner organization, CARE, and more than 120,000 people gathering in 450 theaters across the United States to celebrate International Women's Day 2009. On the evening of March 5, CARE is hosting an unprecedented one-night event featuring "A Powerful Noise", an acclaimed documentary that follows three extraordinary women - Hanh is an HIV-positive widow in Vietnam, Nada starts a women's cooperative after the Bosnian war, and Jacqueline educates girls in Mali. The film takes you inside the lives of these women to witness their daily challenges and significant victories over poverty and oppression. Immediately following the film a town hall discussion will be broadcast live from New York to participating theatres, with renowned activists and experts including Nicholas Kristof, Christy Turlington Burns, and CARE President & CEO Helene Gayle, to discuss how we can empower women around the world to fight global poverty.
WITI members can attend the event with friends and colleagues, and WITI local networks can make A POWERFUL NOISE Live their own International Women's Day program for 2009. Simply participate in the event together and then discuss the issues raised in the film at your next meeting.
