Confronting Sexual Violence: Screening of "Resolution 1960"—Mar. 18, 6:30pm
The film focuses on the efforts of Margot WallstrŲm, former UN Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict, to raise the issue of rape being used as a strategic weapon of war to the top of the agenda at the UN Security Council and thereby make the plight of the women an international peace and security issue.
The title refers to the efforts of WallstrŲm to develop and push through UN Security Council Resolution 1960, which provides the UN with the powers to hunt down and prosecute the perpetrators of sexual violence and end the cycle of impunity.
