Event details

York International Womens Week Lecture

Hosted by the Centre for Applied Human Rights

Human rights and environmental lawyer Mónica López Baltodano and film-maker Khristine Gillard, will discuss the civic struggle against the construction of the Grand Interoceanic Canal in Nicaragua, and the social movements that united to resist authoritarianism. There will be a chance to see clips from Khristine’s film "Les Minuscules" which features the voices of women from the peasant, student, and environmental movements.

We hope to hold the event in-person and also to make it accessible online. Please Register your interest and select either a General Admission or Online ticket.
