Documentary About Gendercide Premieres Tonight at the Gallagher Theater

Posted By on Fri, Sep 21, 2012 at 10:15 AM

Tucsonan director Evan Grae Davis hosts a free screening of his film It's a Girl tonight at 6 p.m., at the UA Gallagher Theater. The film is presented by the UA Department of Gender and Women's Studies and Shadowline Films, and marks the launch of the film's international tour. Davis will host a Q&A after the screening.

From a press release:

A powerful and thought-provoking documentary film, It’s a Girl brings attention to the gendercide happening every day in India, as well as China and other parts of Southeast Asia. The United Nations estimates that there are as many as 200 million girls missing around the world today because of gendercide. This war against girls is told through the stories of the victims, families, global experts and grassroots activists. Shot on location in India and China, It’s a Girl asks why this is happening and why so little is being done to save girls and women.
