Talk of Hillary Clinton's possible 2016 run is heating up as 2014 is winding down, so what better time to engage in a discussion about when the United States will finally see a woman in the White House? 

Join us on Tuesday, September 16th for a screening of Madame Presidenta: Why Not U.S.?- Vamos Meninas! complete with a post screening Q&A session with film creator and CEO of the Women and Girl's Foundation (WGF), Heather Arnet!

In January 2013, Heather Arnet, WGF’s CEO traveled to Brazil to meet with the team at ELAS Women’s Social Investment Fund to explore the changing political and economic roles women are playing in Brazil’s global leadership. While in Brazil, Arnet investigated…How Brazil came to elect its first woman president, Dilma Rousseff, in 2010? What impact her presidency is having on global markets, women’s rights and opportunities? And what can American women and businesses learn from our Brazilian sisters and their passionate and successful surge towards economic prosperity and political leadership?
