The 19th African American Women In Cinema Film Festival in New York City from March 22-25, 2017

It's March and time for Women's History month.  This historic month is a great time to celebrate the influential women in our lives.  Not only is March time to celebrate, it is also a time to check out some of the other great event celebrating women and their achievement.  

From March 22-25, 2017, the 19th African American Women In Cinema Film Festival (AAWIC.org)  in New York City .  The festival this year will feature the works of emerging and established women of color filmmakers from around the world and will offer world premiers, film screenings, keynote panels which focus on industry related topics, and special programs. It is the aspiration of African American Women In Cinema, through this Festival, to give talented women a path to fulfilling their dreams, through exposure of their talents, peer interaction and through mentoring by established professionals in the media and entertainment field.

For the second year in a row, Audience Awards has partnered with African American Women in Cinema to help create parity in this industry. The 19th AAWIC Film Festival seeks short webisode submissions, 45 minutes or less, directed, produced or written by women who are of African, Latina, Asian or Native American diaspora.

This competition will launch during the AAWIC Film Festival March 22-25, 2017, in New York City. Our global audience will cast their votes to determine their favorite webisode. Along with audience awards cash and prizes listed below, there will also be an industry juror-curated winner who will receive a 12-month distribution deal with kweliTV.

    Why hasn't the U.S. ratify CEDAW yet?

    President Carter sent CEDAW to the U.S. Senate for advice and consent in 1980. It remains in the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. The Senate has held hearings on CEDAW five times in the past 25 years but failed each time to bring the treaty to a vote on the floor. Why?
    Conservative organizations, such as the Home School Legal Defense Associationand Concerned Women for America, vehemently oppose the ratification of all human rights treaties. They insist that human rights treaties violate American sovereignty. Thirty-eight Republican senators demonstrated this last December, when they refused to join their more moderate colleagues in ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
    CEDAW establishes the moral, civic and political equality of women and protects women's right to be free from discrimination and violence. Thanks to CEDAW, these values have diffused around the world. 
    Conservative critics are wrong when they claim that CEDAW reflects radical feminist views. In fact, a Republican woman, Nixon appointee Patricia Hutar, persuaded the United Nations to draft CEDAW. On January 30, 1974, President Nixon called for the U.S. government to commemorate International Women's Year at all levels.

    Has anyone used an air fryer?

    At first glance, deep fryers and air fryers seem quite similar. Both give regular food (such as veggies or pieces of meat) a delicious taste and crunchy exterior. However, the method a deep fryer uses (dunking food into a large amount of hot oil) is much different from that of an air fryer, which coats food with a little bit of oil then blasts it with hot air. If you love traditional fried food, the deep fryer could be your best bet. If you’re a bit more health conscious and want to achieve similar results without entirely giving up that distinctive fried taste and texture, an air fryer could be the optimal choice.
