Applauding women who serve in U.S. intelligence and military – ‘Zero Dark Thirty’


Moviegoers are invited to join an initiative with Zero Dark Thirty, which has been nominated for five Academy Awards® including Best Picture, that allows people to donate their social media statuses in support of a unified message applauding the women who serve in the U.S. intelligence and military communities. Via Twitter or Facebook, participants’ tweets or posts will be broadcast simultaneously with all other supporters.

Supporters can donate their social statuses by joining the Thunderclap initiative at bit.ly/JoinZDT. The message will be sent on February 1 at noon Eastern time.

On the Thunderclap sign-up page, Oscar®-winning filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow, the director of the film, said, “Women have long played a critical role in our national security, too frequently without proper credit. The recent decision by the Department of Defense to lift the ban on women serving in combat is a move toward acknowledging their important and strategic contributions to our national defense. Though I personally believe war should be avoided whenever and wherever possible, there is no justification for inequality among those ready and willing to serve our country in the armed forces. Please join me in backing this social media campaign that salutes their important and strategic contribution to America’s national defense.”

For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden. Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar® winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) for the story of history’s greatest manhunt for the world’s most dangerous man. Zero Dark Thirty is now playing in theaters nationwide.
