Raising Girls is pleased to partner with Interconnections 21 (IC21) to host an excerpt screening and parent-daughter discussion of the documentary A Path Appears. From the team that created the groundbreaking series Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, A Path Appears follows intrepid reporters Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn and actor/advocates Malin Akerman, Mia Farrow, Ronan Farrow, Jennifer Garner, Regina Hall, Ashley Judd, Blake Lively, Eva Longoria and Alfre Woodard around the world as they uncover the harshest forms of gender-based oppression and human rights violations, as well as the effective solutions being implemented to combat them.
Facilitated group discussion will complement the film excerpts.
Logistics idea for parents: take your lunch hour at the end of the work day, and have your daughter ride the school bus to the library. Rendezvous at 4pm!
This event’s intended audience is parents (or caregivers) and daughters. Because of the mature themes addressed in A Path Appears, including sex trafficking and domestic violence, parental discretion is advised. The film and discussion content may not be appropriate for girls younger than high school.
A Path Appears is also a highly acclaimed book. Participants are encouraged to read it, before or after this gathering. Copies will be available at the event.
IC21 looks forward to hosting a community presentation by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn on June 29 at the Center for the Arts. Mark your calendar and stay tuned for details…
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style.
