Leading the Way to Peace - Stories of Women PeaceMakers on the Frontlines

Date: 
Wednesday, February 27, 2008 - 20:00 to 21:30

UNIFEM and the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice present a documentary screening of "Leading the Way to Peace." The film documents the lives and work of four courageous women: Christiana Thorpe of Sierra Leone, currently serving as Chief Electoral Commissioner; Zarina Salamat of Pakistan, a leader in the peace movement between India and Pakistan; Shreen Abdul Saroor of Sri Lanka, one of the founders of Mannar Women’s Development Federation; and Luz Méndez of Guatemala, a respected gender activist who serves as President of the Advisory Board of the National Union of Guatemala. The film will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers (Sun & Moon Vision Productions) and UNIFEM and IPJ representatives.
