Half the Sky Meeting/Discussion about Women’s Empowerment

Marissa Guerrero ’15 wants you to turn oppression into opportunity for women worldwide:

Half the Sky is a worldwide movement that deals with international women’s issues – including gender violence, sex trafficking, education, economic independence, forced prostitution, and women’s empowerment – to empower women and combat the oppression that women and girls face worldwide. The movement works with a ton of smaller organizations (including Wesleyan’s very own SHOFCO) to support women worldwide.

This week’s meeting has two goals:
1. Organization – planning our exciting events and activities for the semester! Bring all of your great ideas!
2. Discussion about women’s issues! This week’s theme: empowerment through economic independence. We’ll discuss microfinance: its economic benefits, how microloans help to empower women and alleviate poverty, and its criticisms. Check out the websites below for more info!

Join us on Tuesday for an interesting discussion!
