BDTH- Seema Mathur

Thursday 7th February / posted by Chris Wheeldon

Multi award winning journalist Seema Mathur talks to Nadine Richards about Women’s rights in Liberia and the recent successes of the Nobel Women’s Initiative (nobelwomensinitiative.org) Among some of Seema’s notable reports is an exclusive interview she obtained with one of Liberia’s most notorious warlords for CNN, which led her to producing Camp 72, a new TV series slated to air on PBS.

Camp 72 focuses on Liberia’s Civil War and one woman, Gladys Arthur who was forced to watch the brutal murder of her mother by a NPFL Rebel. The same fighter held her as a sex slave for years. The nightmare started at an area Gladys refers to as Camp 72.  Almost a decade later, Gladys like many survivors of the 14 year civil war is trying to rebuild her life. The rebel who raped Gladys and killed her mother lives in freedom miles away from her as no one in Liberia has been prosecuted for their war crimes.

Through the eyes of survivors, warlords, grassroots activists to Nobel Laureates dedicated to ending violence against women – this documentary looks at JUSTICE, HEALING and MOVING FORWARD. We see how people find hope and inspiration in the worst of circumstances.
