Whistleblower Campaign

WILPF is actively promoting the movie “The Whistleblower” in where our current Secretary General of WILPF, Madeleine Rees, is depicted by Vanessa Redgrave. While serving as the UN High Commission on Human Rights in Bosnia in the ninties, Madeleine Rees was pivotal in helping to address issues of women's rights including those depicted in the film where U.S cop Kathryn Bolkovac disrupts gross human rights violations against women involving UN officials during post-conflict reconciliation efforts. In an recorded interview with WILPF, Madeleine Rees applauds the film for its realistic depiction of what happen in Bosnia and offers a message from what the movie represents.
