We had a fantastic turn-out of over 100 people for an outstanding International Women’s Day Program, hosted by Ricky Bernstein and the Berkshire Human Rights Speaker series as part of theBerkshire Festival of Women Writers.

The film SWEET DREAMS was uplifting, inspiring and very real, and sparked a lively conversation with director Rob Fruchtman, which continued out in the lobby over a special Blue Marble Ice Cream social, sponsored byRubiner’s Cheesemongers & Grocers.

If you missed it and wished you were there, come to theSisters for Peace and WAM Theatre present: Screening: Half The Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide program next Friday at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center, brought to you once again by the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers.
