The Support Association for the Women of Afghanistan invites the Launceston community to a documentary screening.
The Judge is a documentary about Kholoud Al-Faqih, the first woman judge to be appointed to a Shari’a court in Palestine in more than 1000 years since the courts were first put in place.
The film offers an insight into Islamic law and gendered justice, alongside universal conflicts such as custody of children, divorce, and abuse.
The film screening will take place at the City Baptist Church on Wednesday, November 6.
Doors open at 5.40pm for a 6pm start.
Tickets are $15 and $10 for concession, and can be bought online at www.sawa-australia.org or at the door.
