General Monthly Meeting & New Member Meet and Greet

  • Apr 29, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us at 6:30pm to welcome our new members, enjoy light refreshments and socialize at a meet and greet before the meeting at 7pm.

This month's meeting will feature the film, Honor Diaries.

The Executive Producer of this 60-minute film is Ayaan Hirsi Ali, whose name you may recognize from recent headlines when Brandies University rescinded her honorary degree and speaking invitation.  (She was also the writer of the 2004 short film, "Submission."  The producer of that film was Theo van Gogh, who was assassinated on the streets of Amsterdam shortly after the film's airing on the Dutch public broadcasting network.)

Honor Diaries explores violence against women in honor-based societies, focusing on genital mutilation, honor killings, and forced marriages.  The film profiles nine women's rights activists with origins in the Muslim world.

Segments of the film are difficult to watch, but the information is timely and important.

    Good video although I believe too much of this is already known to the world. It was amazing to see these women risking their lives to make a differance. The world, AND the USA needs to step-up and educate, prosecute and STOP this from happening whenever and wherever they can. This INCLUDES the US where our laws should be strong and followed.
