Free Movie: A Walk To Beautiful

At today’s weekly SIHR meeting, we learned about a newly-formed group in The Dalles: Half the Gorge Sky, a group of women who have come together with a mission very similar to that of Soroptimists, improving the lives of women worldwide. They were inspired after a book club reading of “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide”.

In the interest of public awareness and education, Half the Gorge Sky invites everyone in the community to a FREE screening of the film, “A Walk to Beautiful,” an Emmy award-winning story of healing and hope for Ethiopian women devastated by childbirth injuries. The film follows the story of 5 women, who as a result of their injuries are abandoned by their husbands and ostracized by their communities, undertake the long journey to reclaim their lost dignity and self-worth.

This FREE screening is this Thursday, February 3rd, 6:30pm, at the Columbia Gorge Community College in The Dalles, Building 3, Room 302.
