doc seeks to change attitudes about rape
Palestinian Abeer Hadad made her first film with the intent to change attitudes about sexual assault. Hadad seeks to remove the stigma from being raped, as women and girls who are raped are too often further victimized by family and society. Dum'a was recently screened in Qalanswa, a Palestinian city near Tel Aviv, and this Real News report interviews Hadad and the girls who watched it.
