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.
