Elie Wiesel quote: "The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference." _____________________________________

Social Responsibility by J. Krishnamurti: "Social reforms may be brought about through legislation or through tyranny, but unless the individual radically changes, he will always overcome the new pattern to suit his psychological demands - which is what is happening in the world.

It seems to me very important, then, to understand the total process of individuality, because it is only when the individual changes radically that there can be a fundamental revolution in society.

It is always the individual, never the group or the collective, that brings about a radical change in the world, and this again is historically so.

Now, can the individual, that is, you and I, change radically? This transformation of the individual - but not according to a pattern - is what we are concerned with, and to me it is the highest form of education. It is this transformation of the individual that constitutes religion." _____________________

Theodore Roosevelt quote:

"It is not the critic who counts Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena."

The hummingbird replied, "I heard that the sky might fall today, and so I am ready to help hold it up, should it fall." The elephant laughed cruelly. "Do you really think," he said, "that those tiny feet could help hold up the sky?" The hummingbird kept his feet in the air, intent on his purpose, as he replied, "Not alone. But each must do what he can. And this is what I can do."

Shirley Chisholm quotes: "You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas."

"Service is the rent that you pay for room on this earth."

Shirley Chisholm about her historic speech: "I had something important to explain, I ran because somebody had to do it first. I ran because most people thought the country was not ready for a black candidate, not ready for a woman candidate. Someday - it was time in 1972 to make that someday come."

Shola Lynch quote: "Our goal was to make a documentary as passionate and powerful as Chisholm herself. Her story is an important reminder of the power of a dedicated individual to make a difference. It also reminds us that the country belongs to each of us only if we dare to claim our place in it."

Director: Tom Cappello

Votes: 21

Background:

"Women and girls are the most impoverished, discriminated-against group in the world. Consider the following:

*Of the world's 1 billion poorest people, 60 percent are women and girls. *Women work two-thirds of the world's working hours, yet earn only 10 percent of the income. *Women produce half the world's food, yet own only 1 percent of it's land. *Women make up two-thirds of the estimated 776 million adults worldwide who cannot read or write; and girls make up 55 percent of the 75 million children not attending school."

Margaret Mead quote: "It has been a woman's task throughout history to go on believing in life where there was almost no hope."

"In most societies, women face discrimination, exploitation and exclusion that limit their access to resources and assets. This disempowerment is a universal factor in extreme poverty. Rather than working with women as victims of poverty, more and more non-governmental organizations are working to empower marginalized women to challenge and change the context in which they live."

"Tom Cappello quote: "Film is the best way to get people emotionally connected to a cause...to get a discussion started."

The Women: "Hanh is an HIV-positive widow in Vietnam. Nada, a survivor of the Bosnian war. And Jacqueline works the slums of Bamako, Mali. 'A Powerful Noise' takes you inside the lives of these women to witness their daily challenges and significant victories over poverty and oppression."

"Mahatma Gandhi quote: "You may never know the results of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results." _________

But honestly, getting that message across, to not give up, to keep that hope alive, is something I'm very passionate about. Because I've been in that place."

I hope this event will highlight the need to support those who defend Human Rights, inform those who are unaware of their Human Rights and expose those who deny the rights of others. The approach of a new century offers the chance to shape the world so that the vision of the UDHR becomes a reality for all people."
