Women in War - Film & Discussion

Wednesday, April 8, 2015, 6-8pm, Woodward Technology Center (WTC) 117-121

A look at the film “I Came to Testify”, part of the Abigail Disney’s Women, War and Peace series.

"When the Balkans exploded into war in the 1990s, reports that tens of thousands of women were being systematically raped as a tactic of ethnic cleansing captured the international spotlight. I Came to Testify is the moving story of how a group of 16 women who had been imprisoned by Serb-led forces in the Bosnian town of Foca broke history’s great silence – and stepped forward to take the witness stand in an international court of law.”

A collaborative effort with the YWCA.
