Purpose is to gather women across the state to reflect on the importance of our Governor's race and Mr. Creigh Deeds history of supporting women and our causes.
Featured: "Shut-Up and Sing Documentary"--A chance to reflect on an administration that wasn't accepting of free speech, especially by an all girl band!
The movie from two time Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple and Cecelia Peck that chronicles the lives of the Dixie Chicks from 2003 to the start of their 2006 tour. All the highs, lows and mayhem that occurred just before and for the three years following “the incident” when the lead singer spoke out against the Bush Administration. The personal attacks, the backlash, personal growth, a changing world, making music, having babies, receiving death threats, and even a fair amount of laughter.
We will reflect and discuss just how important the race for Governor of Virginia is to Women. We face a crossroads where we will either elect someone who has actively promoted Women's interests in Virginia government, or a man who spelled out quite clearly his intent to relegate Women to what he considers a support role.
We look forward to sharing the evening with strong Women of the Shenandoah Valley!
