50/50 Day: Rethinking the Past, Present and Future of Women + Power by Anne Gandrud, Grand Père Wines, Parkway Theater

  • THE PARKWAY THEATER 4814 CHICAGO AVENUE SOUTH MINNEAPOLIS, MN 55417 USA (map)

Recent events have made it loud and clear: we need to have a national conversation about the struggle toward gender equality.  What will it take to get to a 50/50 more gender-balanced world?  

If you were inspired by the Women’s March, join us on May 10 at the Parkway Theater for wine, feminism and politics on 50/50 Day!

We’ll enjoy wine tasting with local company Grand Père Wines, view the short film, "50/50, Rethinking the Past, Present and Future of Women and Power", and join in a panel discussion led by Erin Vilardi, Founder and Director of VoteRunLead.

The Film:  Emmy-nominated filmmaker & founder of The Webby Awards, Director Tiffany Schlain uses her signature cinematic-thought-essay style to take us on an electric ride exploring where we are in the greater arc of the history of women and power, and how we can truly shift the gender balance to be better for everyone. 

Proceeds will benefit VoteRunLead, a non-partisan nonprofit organization that recruits, trains, and mentors first-time women candidates.  The panel will include MN State Senator Patricia Torres Ray, Ramsey County Commissioner Toni Carter , and Minneapolis City Council Member Elizabeth Glidden.

www.voterunlead.org is a non-partison nonprofit organization TRAINING POWERHOUSE.   A portion of the cost to attend is tax deductible.
