Conversations on Conflict-Related Sexual Violence

In May of 2019, Worldview met with group of Chicago-based lawyers, social workers, and psychologists who work with survivors of sexual violence. They watched scenes from a film called The Prosecutors, about the people who seek justice for victims of rape in conflict areas. It was directed by Leslie Thomas, who runs ArtWorks for Human Rights.
