A local grad inspired by a documentary has big plans for Mansfield and beyond. Miranda Anthony graduated from Lexington High School in June, but hopes to make big impact locally and nationally very soon. Thursday night, she hosted a screening of the documentary "Half the Sky" at the Renaissance Theater.

The movement aims to spread gender equality in education across Africa and Asia. After watching the documentary, Miranda says she couldn't ignore the voice inside telling her to take action. Miranda took the opportunity to turn the screening into a fundraiser for the movement.

Admission was one gently-used book, per person. Her aim is to not only support, but to educate her community on the educational oppression of women worldwide. She has plans to implement drop-boxes in the Mansfield area that will collect used books and send the profits to support Room to Read, an organizational partner of the movement.
