In celebration of International Women’s Day, CARE and NCM Fathom — in partnership with ONE and the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women — will present A POWERFUL NOISE Live in more than 450 theatres nationwide for one night only on Thursday, March 5, 2009. The evening will begin with a screening of the acclaimed documentary “A Powerful Noise.” This remarkable film features three inspiring women, who overcome daily challenges to achieve significant victories over poverty and oppression: Madame Urbain — an activist working to educate and empower young women and girls in the slums of Bamako, Mali Bui My Hanh — an HIV-positive widow helping others combat the spread of HIV and the social stigma associated with the disease in Vietnam Nada Markovic — a survivor of the brutal Bosnian War bringing women together to rebuild their once-tranquil community These women are changing the world. Their stories will inspire you to join them.

Immediately following the film, I will be joined by former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright, CARE Advocate Christy Turlington Burns, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof and actress and activist Natalie Portman for a town hall discussion broadcast live into your theatre. The film’s executive producer Sheila C. Johnson will be on hand to make a special announcement! Tickets are limited — purchase yours today!
