Why are millions of daughters eliminated every year?
Simply because they are born in a context that prefers sons.
Give Her Life is a new project that is working to break the cycle of gender-selection and creating a future that includes the dignity and contributions of women. Come join us to learn more and celebrate our launch!
It's a Girl
This short film tells the story of gender-selection and those affected by it. Watch the trailer at www.itsagirlmovie.com
Art Show- Portraits by Joseph Routon
A third-generation painter from Paris, Tennessee, Joseph Routon studied portraiture in New York City at the Art Students League and at the National Academy of Design, where he was awarded the Ralph Weiler Prize. He was elected to artist membership in the Salmagundi Club in NYC. Additional study was in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he served on the Board of Directors of the PAFA Fellowship and as editor of the Academy’s alumni magazine.
His hobbies include travel and photography. His photographs have appeared on the cover of Budget Travel Magazine, in the Travel section of the Philadelphia Inquirer, in advertising for the Travel Division of the Smithsonian Institution, and in the United Nations' publication, The InterDependent.
Refreshments, live music, and of course, the unveiling of Give Her Life!
