NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Xanthus Communications has announced the addition of the 7Sisters Project to its client list. Manhattanville College has invited the 7Sisters Project to hold a live summit on their campus on March 2. 7SISTERS LIVE@MANHATTANVILLE is an unscripted, talk-show-style summit for college-age girls to have honest conversations about what it means to be a woman in the current social and political climate.
In recent years, there's been a lot of talk about women's issues, gender equality, and female empowerment, but the 7Sisters Summit actually gives girls and young women a live forum where they can speak up and be heard!
7Sisters is a global media platform that has staged preliminary live summits in the New York City metro area. The 7Sisters Project works with colleges and universities to host female empowerment summits. The summits support, inspire and empower college-age girls to share their stories. Panels of young women discuss the heated topics of today: race, relationships, gender, culture, media and politics. The entire audience has the opportunity to speak and be heard. Filmed in television studios and on college campuses, the summits are edgy talk shows that probe the heart of the most pressing social issues impacting young women today.
Marilyn Fezza, together with her daughter Marissa, founded the 7Sisters Project in 2010 as a social enterprise. 7Sisters uses every facet of the media from blogging and videos to live conversations in a talk show format to get young women talking to one another and to remove the boundaries of ethnicity, color, race, religion and economics.
"Women make up half of the global population but make up a relatively small percentage of its leadership. We are missing a huge percentage of the world's brainpower by not empowering girls. Now, more than ever, is the time to move forward," says Marilyn Fezza, founder of the 7Sisters Project.
The 7SISTERS Project and New York Women in Film & Television present 7SISTERS LIVE@MANHATTANVILLE on Thursday, March 2nd from 4-8 PM at the Berman Center Theatre in Purchase, New York, will be streamed online. Check out http://the7sisters.com/ Facebook: 7SistersProject Twitter: @7SistersProj
