Help amplify the voices of women and girls in Congo by screening one of two powerful documentaries featuring Dr. Mukwege's work. Sign up to host.


"There is a life after all we survived." In 2011, City of Joy opened its doors in Eastern Congo with the goal of building a peaceful and transformational community for women survivors of sexual violence.

This moving film explores how the center was started by women's right activist Christine Shuler Deschyryver, V-Day founder Eve Ensler, and our co-founder, Dr. Denis Mukwege, and follows their awe-inspiring efforts to help women find peace. You can watch the documentary on Netflix here.

There is no screening fee associated with this documentary.


The Man Who Mends Women is the moving story of Dr. Denis Mukwege and his work at Panzi Hospital and Foundations in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Winner of the Sakharov Prize 2014, Doctor Mukwege is internationally known as the man who not only repairs the bodies of tens thousands of women who have been raped during the 20 years of conflicts in the East of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but works to restore their lives and address the root causes of violence in DRC. His struggle to put an end to these atrocities and denounce the impunity enjoyed by the perpetrators has not been welcome. At the end of 2012, Dr. Mukwege narrowly avoided an attempt on his life. But he is no longer alone in his struggle. The women to whom he has restored physical integrity, dignity, and community stand beside him, true activists for peace, hungry for justice.

Screening this film requires a screening fee.
