Boston GLOW Spitfire Film Screening: Paycheck to Paycheck

  • CIC Boston 50 Milk Street, 5th floor, Meridian Boston, MA, 02110 United States (map)

Join Boston GLOW for a screening of the HBO Documentary,

Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert

"From Maria Shiver’s groundbreaking multi-platform “The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From The Brink,” – in partnership with the Center for American Progress - comes an HBO Documentary Film about the story of our time, told through the life of one woman, Katrina Gilbert, whose daily struggles illuminate the challenges faced by the 42 million women and the 28 million children who depend on them who are living in poverty or are on the brink of it.

PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK: THE LIFE & TIMES OF KATRINA GILBERT offers a deeply personal, unvarnished and moving story of Katrina Gilbert, a single mom of three, struggling to get ahead but constantly getting knocked back by a system that almost seems designed to see her fail." 

Following the film, we invite you to join a facilitated discussion that speaks to the systems, both internal and external, that disproportionately effect women in cycles of poverty here in Boston. We would like to spend time not only exploring some the factors, but also understand what the community- both organizations like ours and government - can do to disrupt the cycle for women in our community.

Appetizers and snacks will be served.

PLEASE BRING A PHOTO ID TO GET INTO THE BUILDING
