The selected movies focus on issues that women and girls perpetually endure across the world such as gender-based violence, child marriage, ‘honour’ killings, sexual harassment and rape as well as more abstract forms of violence, including limited access to education, and unsafe labour migration.
All movies will be screened in original language with Thai and English subtitles.
