documentary film in Geneva - 12, 13 May

I am posting this advertisement for my friend, Yoshi.

"The Gift from Beate"

This is the documentary film of the post WWII history of Japanese women who fought to establish their human rights in Japan. Article 24 of the Japanese Constitution, which sets out the equality of women and men, has provided the strongest base in support of the long and winding road over which Japanese women have travelled. Beate Sirota Gordon, though only 22 years old when she drafted this article of historical importance, was the only one among the drafting team who was aware of the pain of Japanese women, of how limited were their rights and how inferior those rights were to those of men.

Re: documentary film in Geneva - 12, 13 May

As I said in the original post, I put up this announcement for my friend, Yoshi.

We have not known each other very long, but I was impressed to hear about her volunteer work involving the film "the Gift from Beate". Yoshi is Japanese (we'd never guess from her name, right?) and she lives in the Geneva area. She works full time but has volunteered a lot of her time to put on this event. It is important to Yoshi because Beate Sirota Gordon's contribution was so monumental for the progress of Japanese women.

I will most likely go to this event, but don't know which night. It would be great to meet up with anyone else who's interested.

Yoshi has informed me that the film is technically non commercial - as it has involved volunteer effort from start to finish. However, the event is not free, and that is why I had to post it in the commercial section.

When you pay for your ticket, it covers the cost of the publicity that has been distributed about the film and the venue, etc...

I hope other people will be interested in coming. Yoshi adds that Geneva is beautiful in May!
