An Evening with Dr. Denis Mukwege & Eve Ensler is part of the RISE4JUSTICE Speakers Series which will examine the meaning of justice to activists working globally to end gender violence and oppression, while looking at impunity caused by the intersection of poverty, racism, war, the plunder of the environment, capitalism, imperialism, and patriarchy. The series is presented by V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls, and ABC Carpet & Home.
Dr. Mukwege is the Director and Founder of the ground-breaking Panzi General Referral Hospital in Bukavu, South Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo, where he performs life-saving fistula surgeries on girls and women who have been brutally raped and mutilated in the Congolese war. He is also the head of the Panzi Foundation, which runs the City of Joy, and the Godfather of the V-Men movement.
*100% of the proceeds will go to the Panzi Foundation, supporting the ongoing work of Panzi Hospital in Bukavu, DRC and creating new outreach projects to rural clinics and communities.
