Invite to HALF THE SKY Live on March 4

Sphere: Related Content I received the message below from the good folks at CARE and was asked to pass it along. The screening occurs 4 days before my Bloggers Unite post for International Women's Day is due so I am going to share it now.

Half The Sky Live

Dear Brian,

You're invited to join CARE at HALF THE SKY Live, our second annual celebration of International Women's Day.

Inspired by moving stories from the critically-acclaimed book "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide" by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, HALF THE SKY Live will be an evening of uplifting songs, celebrity discussion and the world premiere of "Woinshet," a powerful short film directed by Academy Award®-winner Marisa Tomei and Lisa Leone that chronicles the struggles of an Ethiopian woman who triumphs over violence and discrimination.

Much more than a night at the movies, the evening also will feature appearances by India.Arie; Maria Bello; Diane Birch; Michael Franti; Angelique Kidjo; Nicholas Kristof; Sally Lee; Marisa Tomei; Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York; Sheryl WuDunn and a surprise guest.

The one-night-only event will be held in nearly 500 theatres in the United States and Canada on Thursday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. in all time zones. It's sure to be one of the most visible International Women's Day celebrations on the planet!

Please join us in celebrating the movement that's changing the world. Visit for details, theatre listings and to purchase your tickets today.
