Event Details

 

What if you could change the lives of women and girls worldwide?
 
Join us on the 14th May for the London premier screening of the film Half the Sky!

Inspired by the book Half the Sky by The New York Times journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn;  celebrity advocates
America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union, Olivia Wilde  - with an introduction by  George Clooney  – show that despite the challenges facing so many women today, there are women fighting back and change is possible.
 
This ground breaking and highly acclaimed documentary,  shot in 10 countries across Asia, Africa, and America, presents the plight of girls and women worldwide and their enormous courage to transform their lives.  Half the Sky asks what can we do about it and offers an actionable blueprint for its viewers to help turn oppression into opportunity for women worldwide. Check out the trailer here.

WAM UK & Women and Social Finance will be screening at the Moving Picture Company Screening Room in Soho – one of the most comfortable and best equipped theatres in London. On the night we will show the documentary (approx. 1.5hrs) and discuss what we can do to help. Drinks, nibbles and networking opportunities will be also be provided.

This ticketed event is open to all (men and women, and non-WAM UK members) and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are limited so please act fast. Buy your tickets here or http://halftheskywamuk.eventbrite.com/
