2019 Celebrating Women's Voices Event
Sunday, October 6, 2019, 3-7 pm
Moorestown Community House, 16 East Main St, Moorestown, NJ 08057
Featuring Guest Speaker
Executive Producer of the Oscar-winning documentary short subject "Period. End of Sentence."
Claire Sliney, a sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania, is the first student to receive an Oscar
while enrolled at the school. As a freshman in high school, Claire co-founded The Pad Project,
a non-profit dedicated to creating and developing global partnerships to end both the
stigma surrounding menstruation and the poverty caused by that stigma. Her Oscar-winning film
grew out of the work of the Pad Project in India and is currently streaming on Netflix.
The event will include dinner, wine, live music and lots of gift basket raffles,
as well as an opportunity to meet this outstanding young artist and thinker and
hear her talk about her work.
"A period should end a sentence, not a girl's education."

American society, and the importance of the advancement of women's rights.

education, family life, and volunteerism.
