The Global Women's Institute is giving a voice to women and girls who have been silenced around the world. Working with the Honor Diaries film project, GWI will launch the first-ever Censored Women's Film Festival to screen stories that expose women's rights abuses.
Friday tickets are free for GW students and include screenings, workshops, and discussions with activists and filmmakers including Paula Kweskin, producer of Honor Diaries. Ms. Kweskin spoke to GW Today about the film's reception and how art can combat violence against women.
