Youth Discuss the Role of Art in Confronting Harassment and Violence against Women with Actor Hassan Al-Sabaila

2019-03-12

What are the root causes of sexual harassment? What can be done to stop it? Can art play a role in changing the way people think about violence against women?

A group of young men and women met in a workshop hosted by Al-Quds Center on March 12, 2019, to discuss these and other questions. They watched an Egyptian film called "Cairo 678" and discussed the themes it approaches on sexual harassment and possible means to combat it. Jordanian actor Hassan Al-Sabaila attended the event and led the youth in a discussion about how art can be used as a means to fight harassment.
