Half the Sky - Hard Rock Cafe, Paris 9ème, Tues 28th May 2013, 19h & 21h
See Room to Read in action! Our Girls’ Education programme in Vietnam is featured in the stunning PBS documentary Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. We’ll be screening a 45 minute extract of the film, followed by the chance to chat at the Hard Rock Cafe bar.The Room to Read segment features three of the girls whose lives have been transformed just by being allowed to stay in school. As hard hitting as it is uplifting the film also provides a glimpse into the kind of challenges these girls, and millions like them, continue to face.The documentary itself is based on the best-selling book ‘Half the Sky’ by Nicholas Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn, a husband and wife team working for the New York Times who travelled the world reporting on the incredible odds still stacked against girls and women today. If, in the words of Mao, women hold up ‘half the sky’ how can we afford to leave them behind any longer?

If you would like to organise a showing of the Half the Sky film (45mins) at your Paris area place of work, study, worship, or home please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
