Marianne Williamson Teams with The Women’s Campaign School at Yale University to Create SISTER GIANT, 2 DAY Symposium to Empower Women to Run for Political Office, November 10-11, Saban Theatre in Los Angeles.
WHO: New York Times bestselling author Marianne Williamson partners with The Women’s Campaign School at Yale University to produce a non-partisan symposium dedicated to empowering women to run for political office, with an emphasis on the intersection of politics and spirituality.
Sister Giant puts out a special call to women to consider candidacy for political office. It is a non-partisan, unabashedly spiritual and progressive symposium. Its goal is to promote gender equality in political leadership, at a time when the US Congress is comprised of only 16.8 percent women, and State legislatures are comprised of 23.6 percent women.
WHEN: November 10-11, 2012
WHERE: Saban Theater
8440 Wilshire Boulevard Beverly Hills, CA 90211 (323) 655-0111
WHAT: Sister Giant hot topics include but are not limited to:
At a rate of 23.1% child poverty in the United States ranks second highest among 35 developed nations (second only to Romania).
Prisons as a Growth Industry
The US currently incarcerates more of our people than any nation in the world, or any nation in history.
