NDI and the National Capital Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women  invite you to commemorate the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day with a film screening and panel discussion of La Hija Del General (The General’s Daughter).
La Hija Del General follows Michelle Bachelet on her surprising journey along the campaign trail in 2006 to becoming the first woman president of Chile, one of South America’s most conservative nations. Dr. Bachelet is the first under secretary general of the brand new UN Women agency created to accelerate UN goals on gender equality and the empowerment of women. The film screening will be followed by a panel of experts to discuss the new UN agency and Dr. Bachelet’s impact on women’s political participation in development programming. The film is in Spanish with English subtitles.
