From 28 March to 6 April 2011, the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice and WITNESS held a ten-day video advocacy workshop in Nairobi, Kenya, for 17 gender justice activists from six armed conflict and post-conflict situations.  This video documents the training and includes interviews with the organisers.

In September 2010, the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice launched a multi-year project with WITNESS to train more than 30 partners and women’s rights activists from armed conflict situations on the use of video as an advocacy tool.

The gender justice films and the skills developed through this project are being incorporated into the Women’s Initiatives international and domestic gender justice programmes, international strategies and global movement-building activities.
