Women of Liberia: Fighting for Peace
Date: Thu 20 November 2008
Amnesty International UK invites you to the screening of the film Women of Liberia: Fighting for Peace, followed by a post film discussion with 2 former Liberian girl soldiers – Jackie and Florence.
Women of Liberia: Fighting for Peace introduces to viewers women who were associated with the war by describing their epic journey from the beginning of the conflict to peace time and the challenges they face along the way.
Despite the shame and stigma and the challenging economic and social environment they face in a post conflict situation, through their own strength and ambition these brave women strive and ultimately can prevail. Their stories are an inspiration to ordinary people and an important lesson to policy makers involved in a post conflict context.
“The film was moving, sad, yet hopeful to hear my sisters tell their personal stories. Many thanks to AI for such great work that is being carried out all over the world.”
