On Saturday, October 11, 2014 at 5:30 pm, CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) and Think Act Change NYC invite you to screen and discuss IT'S A GIRL, a documentary film about the battle to end gendercide.
We're super excited to confirm that the wonderfully awesome serial social entrepreneur Miki Agrawal (best-selling author of Do Cool Sh*t, WILD pizza restaurateur, recipient of the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival’s “Disruptive Innovation Award” and named 2013’s Forbes’ “Top 20 Millienials On a Mission”) will be joining us to discuss the film and her current project THINX, an underwear solution for "that time of the month" with proceeds from sale providing seven reusable cloth pads to get millions of girls back in school. And she'll be bringing FREE PIZZA from Wild! And Sydney-based Think Act Change founder Avis Mulhall will be hosting, and Molly Hayward, founder of Cora (provides organic feminine hygience products by subscription and by donation to women in need all over the world) will be joining the panel discussion!
The United Nations estimates that as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because they have been killed, aborted or abandoned simply because they are girls. Will gender equality ever become a reality? What is stopping us from tackling this universal problem together and advancing women's human rights today? This will be a great opportunity for you to share your thoughts on the latest Emma Watson HeforShe speech and on what you think the media and organizations could be doing collectively in our community to further gender equality because at the end of the day it's not his or her problem, it's our problem.
