Steamboat briefs: Library to offer advance screening of ‘Path Appears’
January 25, 2015
Community Cinema, presented by the Bud Werner Memorial Library, Independent Television Service and "Independent Lens," will offer an advance screening of "A Path Appears" at 6:30 p.m. Monday in Library Hall. This is a new film from the creative team behind the groundbreaking series "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide."
The film follows Pulitzer Prize-winning author/reporters Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, as they explore the roots of gender inequality, the devastating impact of poverty and the ripple effects that follow — including sex trafficking, teen pregnancy, gender-based violence and child slavery. It is based on the book by Kristof and WuDunn, "A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity."
The library will host part one of the film, "Sex Trafficking in the USA."
