During the Forum, the National Audiovisual Institute will show its videos on the subject of “women and peace”. Created as part of a web series which was produced for the Normandy Region, these videos provide portraits of various women who have worked to develop peace. The series of portraits of public figures from around the world aims to educate visitors with content of major historical importance, using archive footage. The series includes episodes on Louise Weiss, an early campaigner for women’s right to vote, a fighter in the Resistance and a strong believer in the European project, Beate Klarsfeld, who fought for the Holocaust to be formally remembered in Germany and around the world, Lina Ben Mhenni, a Tunisian blogger and a key figure in the Arab Spring, Angela Davis, a feminist activist and an icon of the fight against racial segregation in the United States and Shirin Ebadi, the first female judge in Iran and the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2003. As part of this exhibition, Frédéric Chambon, Regional Officer at the National Audiovisual Institute, will give groups of young people the opportunity to enjoy a VIP visit of the exhibition, supported by the Region.
