I’m a Girl Film Screening

16 October 2014 – 11:00AM

Venue: Bankstown Arts Centre

Presented by: BYDS/ Bankstown City Council

Description

“There is a group of people in the world today who are more persecuted than anyone else, but they are not political or religious activists. They are girls. Being born a girl means you are more likely to be subjected to violence, disease, poverty and disadvantage than any other group on the planet. As each girl moves closer to coming of age, I AM A GIRL, a feature length documentary, reveals what it means to grow up female in the 21st century. BYDS in partnership with Bankstown City Council will be holding a screening of this movie at the Bankstown Arts Centre on the 16th of October from 11am – 12pm. The screening is free but bookings are necessary which can be made at http://trybooking.com/FWWY
