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.

Evening programme:

18.00 – Introduction to the movie and introduction to the context of the Norwegian celebration of 100 years of female suffrage

20.15-20.30 – Break
