Women in Haiti, After the Earthquake

“The way you saw the earth shake, that’s how our bodies are shaking now,” says a Haitian woman activist, speaking about sexual assault and violence against women and children in Haiti since the earthquake January 12, 2010. We’ll discuss the safety of women and girls, reports that aid is not reaching the people of Haiti, and that the process for rebuilding Haiti politically, economically, socially and physically, has excluded women.

Guests: Marie St. Cyr, Haitian human rights advocate, Board Member of MADRE and  Lambi Fund of Haiti. Beverly Bell author of the book Walking on Fire: Haitian Women’s Stories of Survival and Resistance and Nicole Phillips, staff attorney of Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti
