Ending Impunity for Sexual Violence Against Women and Girls
March 8, 2012
Join us for a conference condemning violence against women in recognition of International Women’s Day!
A free and open to the public discussion will take place on March 8th and will center on the issue of ending domestic and international impunity for sexual violence.
The conference will include the screening of a short, just released documentary that addresses the issue of young girls victimized as “Opium Brides.”
The event will also feature two panels of distinguished speakers. Each panel will focus on issues such as the geographical commonalities regarding sexual violence and the issue of impunity for sexual violence. Through the conference, the collaborating organizations will work to spread awareness on the issue of impunity for sexually violent conduct and together we will issue a resounding call to end this impunity.
The event will be followed by an opportunity to network and discuss potential future collaborations including volunteer opportunities.
The event details are as follows:
