‘Tell it Like a Woman’: Italian film on women’s rights will be screened at the UN in March; Italy looks for sponsors

NEW YORK, JANUARY 6  – ‘Tell it Like a Woman,’ an Italian women’s film about women’s rights, will be screened at the UN Headquarters in early March to draw attention to issues of combating gender-based violence and women’s empowerment. Italy’s initiative at the UN in collaboration with UN Women will coincide with Italy’s 2023 vice-presidency of the UN’s largest agency on women’s rights and will precede the opening of the 67th session of the Commission on the Status of Women scheduled at UN Headquarters from March 6-17.

Seeking private sponsorships to support the screening and a subsequent side event, the Italian Permanent Mission to the UN launched a call for technical and financial support. The initiative will allow interested parties the opportunity to promote their profile in the prestigious setting on the UN. The sponsorship offer must be submitted by January 30 2023.
