The Friedrich Ebert Foundation organizes the screening of the documentary Women’s March – Democracy and Human Rights and a discussion about current political issues.

The documentary explores the issues that arose after the US Presidential Elections of 2016. In this 30 minute documentary the filmmakers captured the stories of five individual women, and their unique response to the US political climate as well as their motivations to march.

On January 21, 2017, a day after the US presidential inauguration, hundreds of thousands of women marched on Washington DC in order to call for human rights and social justice. They were joined by protestors across the US and all around the world, and it became the largest protest movement of the last decades. For all the people marching that day this was an opportunity to make their voices heard and to stand up for their values.

The presentation of the documentary will be held at Kino Moviemento, Kottbusser Damm 22, Berlin at 6.30 pm on November 14th, 2018. After a short introduction by Elisa Gutsche and Franziska Korn from, the screening will start at 7 pm. A discussion with representatives of Women’s March and other feminists will follow.
