Half the Sky documentary to be shown on campus

Join Panhellenic Council, the head council for all five sororities on campus, for a viewing of the documentary Half The Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide on Tuesday, October 2, at 9 p.m. in the Jardine room.

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide is a movement to confront the greatest moral challenge of our time: the oppression of women and girls across the world. Inspired by the groundbreaking book of the same name, the Half the Sky Movement is a call to action driven by growing awareness that empowering women is the greatest opportunity to increase prosperity and stability around the globe. Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn have lent their voices to women and girls silenced across the world, as well as the unsung heroes working day in and day out to secure their rights and open up opportunities for them to flourish. Join them in this movement!
