Half the Sky: From Oppression to Opportunity

Event Date: 
November 13, 2012 - 19:00 - 21:00

A film and panel-discussion about worldwide oppression of women and girls and the efforts to expose and end it. The evening features a condensed version (41 minutes) of the PBS documentary film Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide (based on a book by the same name by Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas Kristoff and Sheryl Wudunn's) and is followed by a panel discussion about the issues and solutions. The post-film discussion is moderated by Sahar Alnouri, Mercy Corps' global gender advisor. Panelists include: Steven Nakana, a Rotary World Peace Fellow and adjunct professor of Conflict Resolution at PSU; Lynn Renken, Mercy Corps' youth and adolescent girls senior advisor; and Dr. Sabine Volchok, a family practitioner who volunteered recently at a Somali hospital featured in the film.
