coming. But time and place are all set.)

A brief synopsis about the movie and the charity.
comments from both Joss and Equality Now follow.

Serenity

A passenger with a deadly secret. Six rebels on the
run. An assassin in pursuit. When the renegade crew of
Serenity agrees to hide a fugitive on their ship, they
find themselves in an action-packed battle between the
relentless military might of a totalitarian regime who
will destroy anything - or anyone - to get the girl
back and the bloodthirsty creatures who roam the
uncharted areas of space. But, the greatest danger of
all may be on their ship.

Equality Now

Equality Now was founded in 1992 to work for the
protection and promotion of the human rights of women
around the world. Working with national human rights
organizations and individual activists, Equality Now
documents violence and discrimination against women
and mobilizes international action to support their
efforts to stop these human rights abuses.

Quotes:

"There are two ways to fight a battle like ours. One is
to whisper in the ear of the masses, try subtlely and
gradually to change the gender expectations and mythic
structures of our culture. That's me. The other is to
step up and confront the thousands of atrocities that
are taking place around the world on an immediate,
one-by-one basis. That's a great deal harder, and
that's Equality Now. It's not about politics; it's
about basic human decency."

- Joss Whedon

"All of us at Equality Now continue to be amazed by and
grateful for the Browncoats' and Serenity fans'
generous and committed support for our work. Their
energy and enthusiasm is inspiring and these
screenings are coming at a critical time when we are
especially in need of funds! We thank each and every
one of them and Happy Birthday to Joss!"

- Amanda Sullivan, Equality Now
