There is some great incentive to coming in to Raleigh the night before the NC NOW state conference – we’re screening “Seeing Allred,” a new documentary about Women’s Rights Attorney Gloria Allred.
The NC NOW State Conference is on Saturday, 10/20/18, with the theme of “Women Rising Up NOW!” To show what one woman can do, and in line with our conference theme, we are screening “Seeing Allred” for our event on Friday, 10/19/18, at 7pm. Attorney Gloria Allred is an inspiration! The film intertwines the stories of her life and her persistence in going after actor Bill Cosby with what ended up being 50 women willing to speak out about what he did to them.
What: Screening and discussion of “Seeing Allred”
Where: Comfort Inn & Suites Crabtree Valley
When: Friday, Oct 19, 2018
RSVP: Email president at raleighnow.org with your name or names, or
The film was screened at the national NOW conference in San Jose in July, 2018. Here is a picture of Ms. Allred on stage (with microphone) and the directors of the film, Roberta Grossman, Sophie Sartain.
Hope you can join us at the screening, early dinner, and at the state conference. This film may really change your perception about who she is, but also about how telling stories can heal, and what one woman’s persistence can do.
