From One Billion Rising Italy Coordinators Nicoletta Billi, Silvia Palermo, and Anna Vezzoli - "On 25 November, on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the City of Joy documentary, @cityofjoyfilm, was shown in Milan, in collaboration with WeWorld Onlus and Corriere Della Sera, @corriere. Directed by Madeleine Gavin, City of Joy tells the story of Congolese women in a center founded in Congo by Eve Ensler, along with activist Christine Schuler-Deschryver and Dr. Denis Mukwege.
During the 20 years of war in the Congo, women have suffered terrible violence. The documentary tells the path these women take to restore their lives and transform physical and mental devastation into powerful forms of empowerment for their country. OBR Italy activists dedicated the film showing to One Billion Rising 2018 Solidarity!"
