Award-winning investigative reporter on “NOW with Bill Moyers” (PBS), Michele Mitchell discusses her experiences documenting and sharing the gripping and world-changing story of a group of young international lawyers and activists who fought to make rape a crime of war, and the Rwandan women who came forward to testify and win justice where there had been none. Through short clips extracted from her 2016 documentary The Uncondemned, Mitchell will illustrate the ongoing struggles lawyers and advocates face prosecuting acts of genocide.
