About

Over the last eight years I have organised film screenings to celebrate International Women’s Day and raise funds for women’s charities. This year we will be supporting Ashiana and Women for Refugee Women. Ashiana work in Sheffield with Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee (BAMER) adults, children and young people fleeing domestic and sexual abuse including forced marriage, human trafficking, female genital mutilation, gang violence and ‘honour’ based violence. Women for Refugee Women work with women and children seeking asylum in the UK, to ensure they are treated with justice and dignity, and challenge the injustices experienced by women who seek asylum in the UK.

Event details

Screening of 'Desert Flower'

In partnership with Sheffield Hallam University Students Union and Unite the Union, we have organised a free screening of ‘Desert Flower’ (2009), a biographical film following the life of Waris Dirie. Dirie was born into a nomadic pastoralist background in Somalia, and the film follows her journey as she escaped an arranged marriage at 13, and then fled from Africa. She moved to London, where she was discovered as model, and shared her experience of the female genital mutilation (FGM) that she had undergone as a child, subsequently becoming the UN spokeswoman against FGM in 1997.
