On Wednesday, Nov. 4, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Women of Vision Foundation will host its annual Fall Event. This year’s program will feature a cocktail reception followed by a special screening of the award-winning documentary Brave Miss World. The film follows the story of how Israeli model Linor Abargil went from being a teenage rape victim to becoming Miss World and an empowered lawyer and activist in the fight against sexual violence. Brave Miss World is “a thought-provoking film that will touch both your heart and mind,” says Jewish Federation Senior Endowment Officer Susan Lundy.
After the screening, there will be a discussion and Q&A session with the film’s director, Cecilia Peck, and a rape crisis professional.
The event will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. at Gratz College in Melrose Park. The cost is $45 per person or $10 for students with proper ID. For more information or to register, visit jewishphilly.org/fallevent.
