On the occasion of International Women's Day (March 8) and F&M's International Women's Week celebration, the film It's A Girl will be shown. This film is about the world's 200 milliion "missing" women. When the film was released in September of 2012, the hope and desire was to educate and mobilize a movement to end gendercide in India and China. In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide.”
This event is open to the public.
Free; no tickets required.
