Make A Powerful Noise On International Women's Day
We”ll be watching the film “APowerfulNoise’ and participating in a live town hall discussion with panelists Madeleine Albright, Natalie Portman, Nicholas Kristof, Christy Turlington Burns and Helene Gayle. Can you imagine – being able to discuss women”s empowerment and fighting poverty with the likes of them?
Women around the world are working hard to make a difference for the women and girls in their communities ’” many of them dealing with the same issues they”re confronting. One woman I met feared that her daughter would be circumcised while she was away. Another woman, who worked as HIV/AIDS coordinator in Zambia, was taking care of four more children in addition to her own three, after losing several siblings to AIDS.
We can all make a difference by learning about the issues and getting involved. Help me make a difference by attending APN Live and joining the APN Live Tweet-a-thon! Thirty percent of APN Live ticket costs will go to CARE”s poverty fighting programs. And by tweeting "#apowerfulnoise" today thru March 5, CARE will receive $.10 per tweet for fighting global poverty. Tickets have sold out at several theaters, so be sure to buy yours soon!
