Join us on Wednesday the 6th of March for the movie screening of Wadjda in Gaia 1. This movie was the winner of the audience price of the Rotterdam Film Festival in 2013. Wadjda is about a Saudi-Arabian girl who is not allowed to ride a bike, unlike the boys. But... she does not take no for an answer!

This evening, Esha Shah (WUR) will introduce the topic of women's rights in Saudi-Arabia as well as in western countries, also in reference to upcoming right-wing movements.

The 8th of March it is international Womens day. To bring this to attention, OtherWise and Amnesty International Wageningen screen this documentary on the topic of womens rights. You can also join us at the women's march in Amsterdam on the 9th of March. See the Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/537827783387702/
