UWS would like to invite you to a film screening followed by panel discussion at the
CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow on Monday 18th February at 6pm,
The debate will focus on the role of international law in achieving justice for women survivors of rape in war.
“The Uncondemned,” tells the gripping and world-changing story of a group of young international lawyers and activists who fought to make rape a crime of war, and the Rwandan women who came forward to testify and win justice where there had been none. Up until the Rwandan atrocities, rape had not been prosecuted as a war crime and was committed with impunity. The “uncondemned” is a courtroom thriller and personal human drama interweaving the stories of the characters, leading to the trial at an international criminal court.
The screening will be followed by a panel and audience discussion with Kirsty Thomson, co-founder and Partner/Director of JustRight Scotland, and Dr Lynsey Mitchell, Lecturer in Law at Abertay University.
There is a £5 charge for entry and all proceeds will go to the Tubahumurize Association, a Rwandan charity which supports and empowers female victims of violence and marginalization in Rwanda. https://rwandanwomencan.org/
Tickets available at the door or online (£1 booking fee) at www.cca-glasgow.com/programme/standing-safe-campaign-the-uncondemned-qanda
