When did we stop listening to each other? How did self-entitlement and lack of empathy for one another become normal? At what point did it become acceptable—even sexy—to sing about sexual violence, to laugh at jokes about rape? Blurred Lines is a performance and a conversation, one that draws attention to the profound impact of rape in our society and challenges audiences to reflect on the roles we all play in a culture that promotes silence and blurs the lines of consent. By taking the shame out of talking about sex and sexual assault, Blurred Lines inspires healing through storytelling and empowers a new generation of leaders to end cycles of sexual violence, from inside the home to college campuses and beyond.

Thursday, October 20th, 2016, 8:30am-12pm

Lipton Hall at NYU Law School

Women play a vital role in driving New York City’s growth. Together, women and girls make up 52 percent (or 4.4 million individuals) of the city’s total population. Women are a key part of the city’s economy: about 58 percent of women participate in the labor force, contributing to nearly half of the city’s total labor force. Girls in New York City’s public schools are also more educated than ever, outpacing boys in high school completion rates by 11 percentage points. This forum was hosted by the New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, in partnership with The Community Service Society of New York, New York Women’s Foundation, and the Women’s City Club of New York. Girl Be Heard performed a piece on sex trafficking.

This event featured a panel of thought leaders for a look at the past, present, and future of women’s health. The panel included Alex Sanger, Margaret’s grandson and current Chair of the International Planned Parenthood Council; Imani Gandy, Senior Legal Analyst at Rewire News and co-host of This Week in Blackness Prime; and Professor Lynn Roberts, CUNY School of Public Health. Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! moderates. The discussion was followed by a special performance by members of Girl Be Heard, presenting work about past and present struggles encompassing women’s health and reproductive rights.

Cracks of Light, part of Gibney Dance’s observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, bears witness to survivors of intimate partner and gender-based violence in a series of performance works created during the journey from struggle to survival. Bringing forward stories once held in silence, the series gives voice to the power of art and community. Presenting performances by several artists, re-stagings of advocacy pieces created in collaboration with survivors and youth, and works by and for some of Gibney Dance’s strongest Community Action partnerships, Cracks of Light reflects upon Gibney’s work to date, connects with its community of advocates, and looks ahead to its future. Girl Be Heard will be performing an original dance-spoken word piece.

What happens when children and their families fall further and further below the poverty line?

Eliminating trafficking is identified as a strategic objective under violence against women and specific actions are proposed to achieve this objective. In the last twenty years there has been a strengthening of the normative framework to prevent trafficking and many policies and programs to address trafficking have been undertaken. Yet, an estimated 21 million people worldwide are victims of trafficking and the ILO estimates that $150 billion is the annual profit from trafficking worldwide. Our panel will present some innovative approaches to end trafficking.

Girl Be Heard will be performing our award winning show Trafficked at UMass Lowell. “A can’t miss production,” (Ebony Magazine), Trafficked tells the story of sex trafficked girls through the lives of 15 young women across the globe. The show puts a name and face to the countless girls enslaved into the 28 billion dollar a year sex industry. This cutting edge ensemble piece received 11 theatre awards in its premiere year, 2012. “Girl Be Heard brings to the stage an honest and powerful performance. The result will break your heart — and open your heart,” lauds Gloria Steinem. This is a closed event. For more information e-mail Ashley.
