Event Details

In ‚ÄėResilience and Resistance‚Äô, Mohammed Hathi delves into the systemic oppression of women that has become part of the fabric of normality within communities worldwide, as well as in Sri Lankan society. Hathi depicts the realities of female discrimination through the lens of a witness, highlighting the marginalisation which women face at the hands of authoritative bodies and institutions in the country. He endeavours to bring attention to the main discriminatory pillars that detrimentally affect women in Sri Lanka.
