As part of the worldwide celebration for International Women’s Day, SowHope is hosting a local screening of Disney’s Queen of Katwe on March 8 at 2 PM at Celebration Cinema Woodland Mall. This family friendly event is open to the public. Tickets are $10 each and must be purchased in advance at www.sowhope.org/iwd2020. This price includes admission to the movie plus a small popcorn and soda. Seating is limited; so get tickets soon.
International Women’s Day was first held in 1911. The day marks a call to action for accelerating women’s rights, as well as being a celebration of the achievements of women. This year’s theme—#EachforEqual—aligns with SowHope’s mission to equalize the opportunities afforded women in developing and Third World countries.
Queen of Katwe is an inspirational and award-winning movie about the struggles faced by women who live in poverty.
