“It is the faces of the women that will always move me, guide my footsteps through the landmines...”

On the occasion of our annual Speakers Series, Inter Pares presents a reading of the documentary play Seven. The play intertwines seven true stories told by women’s rights activists in Russia, Cambodia, Guatemala, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Pakistan and Northern Ireland. The evening will be a conversation about violence against women and women human rights defenders, and a celebration of inspiring work to promote women’s rights.

The event will begin with a reception at 6 p.m. with light refreshments, followed at 7 p.m. by the inaugural presentation of the Peter Gillespie Social Justice Award to a Canadian organization whose work has had a positive and innovative impact on women’s rights. The reading of the play will then commence, followed by a brief facilitated discussion.
