The Movie talk is an event that will serve as an opportunity for scholars and non-scholars to have a meaningful and informative discussion about sexual violence. During this event, scholars and non-scholars will watch significant clips of the movie, A Thousand Girls Like Me, which is about a 23 year old young woman from Afghanistan who was raped by her father and fights to seek justice. The movie highlights issues of religion, use of media, country’s justice system, societal norms and perceptions of rape.

After watching clips of the movie, there will be a panel discussion that will focus on the importance of information, dynamics of the justice system that affect women’s decision to report acts of violence committed against them, family traditions and societal norms and standards. The panel will be made up of Masters students from the Lund University’s Department of Gender Studies and reputable organisations such as Kvinna till Kvinna.
