mayo 7, 2020 - 10:30
We will discuss the worldwide project Woman that I co-directer over the last four years and for which we have interviewed 2000 women in 50 different countries. Dealing with big and small topics of women's lives, the idea of the documentary was to give voice to those who are never heard in the media and revealed women's strength and resilience. In this panel, we will talk about the place women have in today's world and what could be their place in tomorrow's world.
