The Empowerment Project

10/01/2014 - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm at Best Western Lakeway Inn
714 Lakeway Dr

What would you do if you weren’t afraid to fail?

Two documentary filmmakers asked themselves that tough question in November of 2012. And their answer was simple: make a documentary that shines light on positive female role models. Tired of seeing women objectified, vilified, or ignored all together in mainstream media, the two thought, “if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.”

The Empowerment Project is a way to celebrate strong, inspiring women in leadership roles all across the US. By telling their stories, we can start to redefine women’s roles in the media, in the workplace, and in the home.

By attending this screening of The Empowerment Project you are joining this very important conversation and encouraging girls everywhere to be the leaders of their lives. More details and to purchase tickets, click HERE
