Event description
Join us for a livestreamed event with doctor, human rights activist and Nobel laureate Denis Mukwege.

About this event

Mukwege has spent decades caring for victims of sexual assault in his homeland, Democratic Republic of Congo. He has stood up to soldiers and warlords, and survived massacres and multiple assassination attempt - and he has never swayed from his mission; in 2018, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize with Nadia Murad. The committee said they had both “put their own personal security at risk by courageously combating war crimes and securing justice for victims.”

In a new book, The Power of Women, Mukwege interweaves his own dramatic story with the voices and experiences of those he has treated, who have found the strength to rebuild their lives. Join him as he discusses his mission to rid our societies of violence against women, and the part individuals and governments can play in bringing about change.
