On Thursday, March 4, 2010 at 7:30pm (all time zones) in theaters nationwide, CARE will present its 2010 International Women’s Day event, Half the Sky LIVE. Inspired by moving stories from the critically-acclaimed book “Half the Sky” by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, Half the Sky LIVE will feature an uplifting night of music, celebrity discussion and the world premiere of “Woinshet,” a powerful short film co-directed by Academy Award® winner Marisa Tomei that chronicles the struggles of an Ethiopian woman who triumphs over violence and discrimination.
Along with several other RESULTS Minneapolis volunteers, I will be tabling on behalf of CARE and RESULTS this Thursday at the AMC Arbor Lakes Megastar 16 in Maple Grove. Ten theaters across Minnesota will be showing the film with a percentage of ticket sales will support CARE’s work in more than 70 countries.
Find a theater near you and purchase tickets on the Half the Sky LIVE website to participate in one of the most visible International Women’s Day celebrations on the planet!
