It's a Girl Film Director Launching New Film Project About Violence Against Women!
We started an important conversation
with my first film, It’s a Girl, asking why 200 million women are
‘missing’ in the world today due to gendercide. But this conversation has led
to many more questions about the plight of women and about what can be done to
help. As a result, I want to invite you to join me as I launch
a new film to grapple with these compelling questions:
Why is it that two out of three
people living in extreme poverty in the world today are women? Why are 140
million girls and women currently enduring the horrific consequences of Female
Genital Mutilation? Why in our modern world, will as many as 100 million girls
be given as child brides in early marriage over the next decade?
How is it that rape has become the
preferred physical, social, mental and emotional weapon of war? And how is it
that today, over 80 million widows have been thrown away by their families in
the brutal aftermath of their husbands’ deaths?
And the greatest question of all:
how can we, as members of the world community, work together to bring justice
and equality to millions of women silently suffering throughout the world?
I will be sending out a big
announcement on November 12th, unveiling a new film project exploring these
questions and highlighting inspirational stories of those who are leading the
way to greater rights and freedoms for women around the world.
I would like to tell you more about
how you can be a part of it! But you must sign up to receive the updates and add your
voice to the movement!
