This post is part of the ongoing series, Show and Tell, where we bring you photos and stories collected by Room to Read team members on the road.
This past Monday, Room to Read was honored to be featured in the ground-breaking documentary Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. In honor of the occasion, our New York Chapter held a special screening of the documentary and invited special guests Nicholas Kristof, Sheryl WuDunn and producer Maro Chermayeff to share their experiences shooting the film, along with founder John Wood. Amy Powell, New York Chapter Leader, who moderated the conversation, shared these photos from the inspirational evening.
