BHRC partners with the Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2021: ‘Mujer de Soldado’ (Soldier’s Woman)

The Bar Human Rights Committee has partnered with the Human Rights Watch Film Festival for the film ‘Mujer de Soldado’ (Soldier’s Woman)

‘Mujer de Soldado’ (Soldier’s Woman) is a deeply moving picture of female solidarity, and the importance of justice and accountability as a path to healing for a group of indigenous women in Peru. Magda was a teenager when soldiers arrived in her small Peruvian village in 1984. 3 decades later, she unites with a number of other women in bringing charges against their abusers. This gentle but powerful portrait is showing at #HRWFFLDN from March 18th.
