hervoicecarries 603x452Friday, September 16 at 9 pm on KRCB TV in the North Bay. Her Voice Carries shares the stories of five quietly heroic women, told through their own words and the street art of international mural artist Sarah Rutherford. The film chronicles Sarah's unique creative idea: to identify ordinary-yet-extraordinary women whose voices are inspiring and uplifting, and create large-scale murals representing each woman and her experiences. The intent is to celebrate different women from diverse communities and to paint their portraits in neighborhoods outside the ones they call home. By some measures, these women are from one of the hardest hit areas in the nation: Rochester, New York, a city facing serious challenges related to concentrated poverty. What the statistics don't reveal is the often-unknown work of women in these communities to create safe and stable spaces inside the chaos. This film captures how these community builders – in the time of #MeToo – are using their voices to empower and call attention to social issues impacting the women in their communities, including sexual harassment and domestic violence, gender identity, race relations, and immigration.
