The man who mends women- affiche

To commemorate the International Day of Women (8 March 2019), the EESC is organising on Wednesday 6 March the screening of the documentary "The Man who mends women" on the life and work of Dr Denis Mukwege.

In 2018, Dr Denis Mukwege, together with Nadia Murad, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize "for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict".

A brief exchange of views with the public on the topics of Peace, Development and the situation of Women during conflicts will take place before the screening of the film.

This cultural event, proposed by the EESC's Subcommittee for Culture is supported by both the SOC and REX Sections of the EESC and will be organised in cooperation with COPEC (Joint Committee for Equal Opportunities).
