Judy Rymer / Australia / 2014 / 84 mins / English and Swahili with English subtitles / Documentary

Australian Charlotte Campbell Stephen was attacked and raped by a gang of men while living in Kenya in 2006. Spurred on by comments from one of her lawyers that “no one wins rape cases in Kenya”, she decides to take her rapists to court. This was to be the beginning of seven years of struggling through the frustrating labyrinth of Kenya’s legal system. Undaunted, Charlotte ploughs on, becoming involved in advocacy groups and bringing hope to Nairobi’s many rape victims, in a story of justice, indomitable spirit and female solidarity.
