The Whistleblower: A film screening and meeting with Kathryn Bolkovac
Posted by Fredsvenn den mars 6, 2013
Underlining International Women’s Day and the 100 anniversary of female suffrage in Norway we would like to invite you to the meeting with Kathryn Bolkovac, a woman whose actions were fully dedicated to women’s difficult situation, and a screening of the film The Whistleblower based on her story, at Fredshuset, Møllergata 12, Oslo, on friday 18.00-22.00.
She is an American former police officer who took a job as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia. Her expectations of helping to rebuild a devastated country were dashed when she uncovered a dangerous reality of corruption, cover-up and intrigue amidst a world of private contractors and multinational diplomatic doubletalk. She has dicovered involvement of peacekeepers in sexual exploitation and sex trafficking in post-conflict situations. Her story was told in the movie The Whistleblower starring Rachel Weisz, Vanessa Redgrave and Monica Belluci.
