Soroptimist International advocates for women's rights with red carpet event

Location

Alex Theatre

216 North Brand Blvd.
Glendale , CA United States

SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL ALHAMBRA – SAN GABRIEL – SAN MARINO invite you to join them on the Red Carpet for a screening of the documentary film Girl Rising. This groundbreaking film, already seen by millions, is the centerpiece of a global campaign to educate and empower girls. Around the world, millions of girls face barriers to education that boys do not. And yet when you educate a girl you can break cycles of poverty in just one generation. Find out how educating girls can change the world – and learn how you can make a difference. Walk the red carpet with us on Sunday, June 28, 2015, 2:30 pm at the historic Alex Theatre, 216 North Brand Blvd. Glendale, CA.

The film follows nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances, as they rise above their conditions in life in pursuit of education. Girls such as: Sokha, an orphan who rises from a life in the garbage dump in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and becomes a star student and accomplished dancer; Suma, who writes songs that help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to free others; and Ruskana, an Indian “pavement-dweller” whose father sacrifices basic needs so that she can realize her dreams.

This must see film is produced by award-winning ABC News journalists, narrated by celebrated actresses (Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, Meryl Streep) and features original music from Academy Award-winner Rachel Portman and Lorne Balfe.

Soroptimist International works worldwide for human rights and to improve the status of women. Josephine Yang, current president of SI Alhambra, San Gabriel, San Marino states, “Girl Rising embodies the Soroptimist goals and I am proud and excited that our club has been given permission to screen this film. The film shows the difficulties faced by girls in other parts of the world and provides inspiration when these girls meet and overcome their challenges.”

Everyone has the “star-power” to make a difference in the lives of women and girls! So, all attendees will be invited to walk the red carpet and pose for the camera as they enter the theatre. Tickets are $35 for VIP admission (includes pre-screening wine and cheese reception), $25 for general admission and $15 for children/students. More information about tickets and the program can be found at www.SIAlhambra.org or www.alextheatre.org. All proceeds from this event will be used for programs that support women and girls.
