Human Rights Week 2020: Movie Screening

Movie: Six Days

UNA Umeå (Umeå FN-förening), UpF Umeå, Kvinna till Kvinna Umeå and Amnesty Umeå University wish you all a warm welcome to the movie screening of the documentary ”Six days” on Zoom, with a discussion after the movie. The movie screening is a part of Human rights Week (HRW). A week were we bring awareness to human rights, bring attention to what happens when our human rights aren’t respected and help those who fight for their rights every day.

The documetary follows three women who are all active in organizations that receive support from Kvinna till Kvinna. Lanja in the Iraqi region of Kurdistan is fighting against oppression of honor. Maia in Abkhazia/Georgia gives girls knowledge about their own bodies. Nelly in Liberia helps poor women take control of their lives through education. But the three have to pay a high price for their commitment. Threats, violence and poverty are just some of the daily obstacles in their struggle for rights that should be obvious to everyone.

The documentary is produced by the organization Kvinna till Kvinna
