Film screening and discussion - Anatomy of Violence
This International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, join us in bringing the voices of survivors from the margins to the mainstream, understanding the societal attitudes that contribute to inequality and pledging to never condone violence against women.
Anatomy of Violence is a Canadian drama film which premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. Directed by Toronto-based filmmaker Deepa Mehta, the film explores the root causes leading up to the 2012 Delhi gang rape incident, including the rigidity of India's caste system, poverty and social values that breed and support misogyny.
From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world. The international campaign originated from the first Women's Global Leadership Institute coordinated by the Center for Women's Global Leadership in 1991.
