Phenomenal Women 2020: Rachel Leah Jones (The Advocate) Q&A

Phenomenal Women 2020 continues with another powerful documentary – The Advocate by Rachel Leah Jones and Philippe Bellaiche.

Lea Tsemel defends Palestinians: from feminists to fundamentalists, from non-violent demonstrators to armed militants. As a Jewish-Israeli lawyer who has represented political prisoners for nearly 50 years, Tsemel, in her tireless quest for justice, pushes the praxis of a human rights defender to its limits.

Join us for a Q&A with Rachel Leah Jones on Thursday, 18th June, from 2pm BST, via Zoom.
