VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND WOMEN
The Stories of
Thursday, March 19
at the Griffin Museum
67 Shore Road, Winchester
In recognition of Women’s History Month, the Multicultural Network and the League of Women Voters Winchester are focusing on the extra burdens of women and girls living in war zones and in countries that discriminate against women on many fronts, depriving them of educational opportunities and basic rights. Our speakers will share their personal experiences with these issues.
Professor Dyan Mazurana, PhD, is a Research Director at the International Center and an Associate Professor at the Fletcher School. She works with governments, UN agencies, and nonprofits to address the rights of women during and after armed conflicts.
Morgan Trevett, a senior at Winchester High School, went to Guatemala in 2013 with School the World, a non profit that builds schools, trains teachers, engages parents, and stocks libraries in poor countries. She learned that most of the girls do not continue school beyond the sixth grade, but she made a friend who defined this barrier and is now a university student.
Join us as we learn about the differences and similarities that we share with these women and girls.
