Half the Sky Screening With Ninkasi at the Majestic, April 11

Upcoming at Majestic Theatre next Thursday, April 11 is a screening of Half the Sky, a documentary based upon the book of the same name. This harrowing description of what co-writers Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn termed the “paramount moral challenge” of today will interest anyone willing to open their eyes to this important humanitarian issue. Attend and learn about struggles facing women the world over: sex trafficking, sexual violence, and lack of educational opportunities for girls and women.

The event is sponsored by Ninkasi Brewing; for every pint of beer sold, Ninkasi will donate $1 to New Light Foundation India, a non-profit community development project and charitable trust. A $3 donation is suggested for admission. For more information, visit http://www.majestic.org.
