Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into

Opportunity for Women Worldwide

 

 

Coming as a special presentation of Independent Lens October 1 and 2, 2012 at 8 PM

A landmark transmedia project featuring a four-hour PBS primetime national and international broadcast event (check local listings), a Facebook-hosted social action game, mobile games, two websites, educational video modules with companion text, a social media campaign supporting over 30 partner NGOs, and an impact assessment plan all inspired by Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, the widely acclaimed book by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide was filmed in 10 countries and follows Kristof, WuDunn, and celebrity activists America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union, and Olivia Wilde on a journey to tell the stories of inspiring, courageous individuals. Across the globe oppression is being confronted, and real meaningful solutions are being fashioned through health care, education, and economic empowerment for women and girls. The linked problems of sex trafficking and forced prostitution, gender-based violence, and maternal mortality — which needlessly claim one woman every 90 seconds — present to us the single most vital opportunity of our time: the opportunity to make a change. All over the world women are seizing this opportunity.

We worked 4 days.

We brought donations of $1,920.13.

We donated over 998 soup labels.

We donated 2004 box tops for education.

We worked for 369.25 hours.

Let's celebrate this mission and all the blessings we both gave and received. 

We'll have a sign up at the Annual Autumn Gathering on October 6 at Temple FUMC for the 2013 CTC UMW Mission Trip to Sager Brown in Baldwin, LA June 16-22.  Get your name of the list ASAP.  I think this one is going to fill up quickly!!!

This Sunday is UMW Sunday for Many

I'm heading for Crawford on Sunday morning to celebrate worship and UMW Sunday with the Crawford UMC.  This will be my second UMW Sunday in a row because I got to worship with the congregations at Morton Chapel and DeLeon UMC last week.  It was my honor to get to speak to these congregations and the De Leon women did such a good job leading the service through prayer, music, women's choir, and all.  I was very impressed and blessed.

I'm looking forward to participating in the reading of the litany Aurora Cepeda provide for us on this UMW Sunday.  I've been thinking about the phrase "And So Shall We" all week. I hope you get to read it in your church because it helps us remember our history and inspires us to live up to the example of our foremothers . From Esther to Mary Magdalene,from Lois and Euince to isabella Thorburne and Clara Swain, we are surroundered by a great cloud of witnesses.  These women surely served God well." And So Shall We"
