Join us for screenings of He Named Me Malala at Southern New Hampshire University and Red River Theatres
In 2015, The World Economic Forum estimated that the gender gap wouldn't entirely close until 2133! This is why the theme of this year's International Women's Day is Pledge for Parity - a promise to take concrete steps to close the gender gap and achieve gender parity more quickly. Given this theme, we are excited to host two screenings of He Named Me Malala, one on International Women's Day - Tuesday, March 8 - at Southern New Hampshire University and another on Wednesday, March 23 at Red River Theatres in Concord as part of our ongoing Crossroads International Film & Discussion series. REGISTER NOW!
"HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund." Find out more about the screenings on our event page.
