Saddened, But Inspired By: the relief efforts by V-Day, who established RISE for the Philippines, a V-Fund to benefit women and men on the ground immediately. 100% of your donations will go to GABRIELA and Gabriela Women’s Party, and will be matched by the V-Fund.

Looking Forward To: next week’s spotlight on Polish female voices with the presentation of the film series Different Ages, Different Voices: Polish Women in Film at the Tribeca Film Center.  It is presented by the Polish Cultural Institute New York, Polish Filmmakers NYC and Polish Film Institute.
