Six films centered on global issues in women's human rights will be screened from September 2009 through April 2010 at various Saint Paul Public Library branches.

Each screening will be followed by a discussion.

All films are free and open to the public.

The first in the series, Dishonored, will be shown at the Hamline Midway Branch Library (1558 W. Minnehaha Ave.) Tuesday, September 15, @7PM.

Dishonored is the true story of Mukhar Mai, a woman whose demands for justice after being raped lead to a series of proceedings that will change Pakistan's legal history forever.
