6/28/06: Sisters in Law
Salt Lake City, UT – In a legal system rife with prejudice against women, the town of Kumba, Cameroon had seen no convictions in spousal abuse cases for 17 years. But state prosecutor Vera Ngassa and court president Beatrice Ntuba have changed the way justice is administered in this small courthouse. With humor and wisdom, the documentary Sisters in Law follows their cases - and shows the difference a few voices can make. Ngassa and Ntuba are in Salt Lake City this week, and join Jenny Brundin to talk about women's rights and social change in their community.
