Zonta Club of Frederick, in partnership with Hood College and Heartly House present a free community screening of the award-winning documentary Little Stones.

Little Stones profiles four women, each of whom are contributing a stone to the mosaic of the women’s movement through their art. The film and accompanying education initiative have been designed to raise awareness about global women’s rights issues, and challenges facing women globally. The 60-minute documentary follows Brazilian graffiti artist Panmela Castro, Senegalese rap-singer Sister Fa, Indian dance therapist Sohini Chakraborty, and fashion designer Anna Taylor as they use their art to combat violence against women, sex trafficking, and to empower women and girls globally.

Doors open at 6 p.m., when local community action groups will be available to provide information about the services offered to our community to combat violence against women.

As part of Zonta Club’s efforts to stop violence against women, those attending the screening are asked to consider making a donation by cash or check that evening to Heartly House of Frederick.

The club contributed baby items to Miriam Dobson for the Frederick County Health Department's Prenantal Clinic.  These items are used to encourage expectant mothers to attend classes that help educate them about their own and their baby's health and welfare.

This event is held each year to honor the achievements of young women in Frederick County.  These girls have shown leadership in their schools and communities.  They are paired with a mentor in their field of interest for an evening of food and conversation.
