Person’s Day 2014 – “I am a Girl” Documentary – October 9, 2014

LEAF Sudbury will celebrate Person’s Day 2014 with the documentary, “I am a Girl” on Thursday, October 9, 2014 in the Sheridan Auditorium at Sudbury Secondary School. The film presentation will start at 7:00 p.m. followed by a reception and refreshments.

I AM A GIRL, directed by Rebecca Barry, is an inspirational feature length documentary that paints a clear picture of the reality of what it means to be a girl in the 21st century. Feminism may have promised equality and sought a better and fairer world for women but the reality is that girls make up almost a quarter of the world’s population yet still face the greatest discrimination of any group in the world. Yet in spite of many obstacles, girls have found extraordinary ways to persevere and in this documentary we hear their stories of strength, hope, courage and a refusal to be second best.
