Suffragette Fundraising Screening for Soroptimist ACT & Monaro

SI ACT & Monaro invite you to join us at the fabulous Palace Electric Cinema for a private advanced screening of the movie ‘Suffragette’.

Your ticket price includes a glass of champagne on arrival, a small popcorn and of course your donation to a great cause.  Please note, Eventbrite charges a $2.79 fee per ticket for use of their website.

All funds raised on the night will go towards one of YWCA’s domestic violence primary prevention programs, ‘Teaching Respect Ed’.  Our donation will enable a local primary school to implement a program that helps children recognise and maintain respectful relationships.  The rationale for funding this evidence-based YWCA program is to work on the root causes of domestic violence: disrespectful attitudes that are based on perceptions of inequality, which are often formed early in life.

Purchase your tickets here.

About the film:

SUFFRAGETTE is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalised and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives.

Please arrive at 6pm (with your ticket – printed or on your smartphone) to receive your glass of champagne and a small popcorn before the movie commences at 6.30pm.
