Please be advised that this week's on-campus screenings of the PBS documentary, Half the Sky, are being rescheduled, as last night's screening was canceled due to the weather. The new schedule is below.

These screenings are being held in conjunction with the Peggy R. Williams Difficult Dialogues Symposium, taking place this Thursday, November 1, at 7:30 p.m. in Ford Hall. Sheryl WuDunn, the first Asian American to win a Pulitzer Prize, will discuss her book, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, and engage us in a difficult-to-digest dialogue focused on such issues as forced prostitution and sex slavery among women and girls. A book signing and reception will follow the program.
