The Trials of Spring

Burden of Peace

Wednesday 11 November

Thursday 12 November

An eye-opening story of three Egyptian women, The Trials of Spring follows Hend Nafea, Mariam Kirollos and Khadiga Hennawi, whose personal and political journeys over the last four years are symbolic of the treatment of women during the Egyptian uprisings. Their stories illuminate the vital - and often underreported - role women play in shaping the country’s future.

Burden of Peace follows Guatemala’s first female attorney general, Claudia Paz y Paz and her battle to bring justice to powerful criminals and corrupt politicians. A real-life tale of personal sacrifice, hard-fought change and hope, this insight into Paz y Paz’s struggle highlights prejudice, sexism and determination.
