Hanan Ashrawi: A Woman of her Time


Wheeler Hall rear of St Anne's Cathedral LS2 8BE

With the support of the Leeds Diocese Justice & Peace Commission


Part of a double-bill celebrating the films of Mai Masri

An intimate portrait of a formidable political activist and former spokesperson for the PLO who rejected a position in government in favour of human rights advocacy. The film explores how she juggles her responsibilities as political activist, writer, and mother—all against the backdrop of challenges facing the Palestinians in their struggle to build a viable state.
