Screening of the documentary ’’Des Femmes et des Hommes’’ on Friday 10th March

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, discover Frédérique Bedos’s acclaimed documentary on gender inequality.

The Alliance Française de Glasgow, in partnership with the Institut Français du Royaume-Uni and Le projet imagine, will host a screening of the acclaimed documentary Des femmes et des hommes on Friday 10th March at the University of Glasgow, followed by a Q&A with director Frédérique Bedos.

Des Femmes et des Hommes / Women and Men, 2015

The film offers an in-depth look at persistent gender inequality revealing surprising economic and social advantages of women empowerment.
Equality is the path to progress!

In a speech adressed at the UN, former Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon explained that if the Millennium Development Goals were not achieved it was because women’s rights were backtracking worldwide. Frédérique Bedos then decided to visit the different continents to gather testimonies and facts.

Du Nord au Sud, des villes les plus occidentalisées jusque dans les villages les plus reculés, l’inégalité des sexes persiste. En brossant un tableau percutant de l’histoire actuelle des femmes, ce film nous sensibilise sur les véritables enjeux historiques, politiques et économiques des discriminations dont elles sont l’objet, partout dans le monde.
