South Sudan: New film from UN Women
I just came across this really interesting new film from UN Women on ‘A Considerable Difference: Women and Representation in Southern Sudan’ – the footage is amazing, and it should get you thinking about gender, conflict and transition, particularly as you look forward to the new IJR Book edited by Friederike Bubenzer and Orly Stern, due out in the next few months!
This is the short description from UN Women:
‘After more than 20 years of civil war and a long struggle for independence, South Sudan officially became Africa’s 54th nation on 9 July 2011. In the making of the nation, women played a significant role in achieving independence—making their voices heard, particularly in the political arena.’
