EventsWomen Hold up The Sky: Film Screening and Discussion

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 EDT @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

As part of KAIROS Climate Action Month, join us for a screening and discussion of the film Women Hold Up the Sky – African Women Rise for Climate Justice.

This film was developed by WoMin, an ecofeminist African alliance that supports local struggles and movements across the continent to expose the impacts of extractivism on African women and advance women-centred, community-driven and climate-just development alternatives.

Women Hold Up the Sky tells the story of how women activists affected by mining and other forms of large-scale extractives in South Africa, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are deeply engaged in resistance and an active struggle to take back control of their land, their rights, their bodies and their lives.

Duration: 90 min
Event will include introductory video by WoMin, screening of the film (35 min), and small-group discussion.
