Screen debate: 'The Uncondemned'

 Monday 18th February , 6pm, CCA, Sauchiehall Street

Film screening followed by panel discussion

Women’s Support Project invites you to a screen debate with a 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 this point, rape had not been prosecuted as a war crime and was committed with impunity. A courtroom thriller and personal human drama, `The Uncondemned` interweaves 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 marginalisation in Rwanda. You can watch a short film about their work here.

Tickets available at the door  or online from the CCA  (£1 booking fee)
