Here’s the short list of reasons Sima Samar probably has interesting things to say tonight at the Tower  about her native country, Afghanistan:

  • She was one of the first female doctors in the somewhat anti-female country of Afghanistan.
  • She’s been forced to flee countries for her safety.
  • She founded an organization to provide heath care to Afghani women and girls.
  • She served as Deputy President in the interim Afghani government after U.S. invasion.
  • She then became the Minister for Women’s affairs there.
  • She was forced to quit that job after receiving death threats.
  • She has been the target of additional public and private harassment by religious conservatives in Afghanistan.
  • She was the first Afghani nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, in 2010.
  • She now heads the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission.

Samar’s presentation, called The Question of Afghanistan is presented by the Nancy R. Chandler Visiting Scholar Program of the COCC Foundation, which worked with the World Affairs Council of Oregon to bring her here and it’s really kind of a big deal that they were able to make it happen.

Only 50 seats left at the moment!

7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St.

A Night at the OperaCelebrate the Tower Theater's 72nd birthday tonight with a showing of the Marx Brothers classic, A Night at the Opera

The Tower will be honoring 1940’s pricing so you can see the flick for only 25 cents! A freaking quarter! Why not get down there!?

Get a dose of good old fashioned slapstick from the men who pioneered it: Chico, Harpo and Groucho.

Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana, you will like this movie. Tower Theater in the 1940's

Above is a photo of the theater in the 1940's...looks like they had some good snow that year, jealous. 

25¢, 7pm, Tower Theater 835 NW Wall Street
