Event description

Description

Join Amb. Diana Lady Dougan, GPS Advisory Board Member and Executive Producer of THE JUDGE, for a special screening on Feb. 6. THE JUDGE is a unique and timely documentary about Kholoud Al-Faqih, the first woman judge to be appointed to the Middle East’s Shari’a (Islamic law) courts. Judge Kholoud was top of her class in law school and a highly regarded lawyer who specialized in representing women and families in civil and criminal court cases. Her stunning strategies and perseverance to become a Shari’a Court Judge was not only historic, but it also embodies so many aspects of inter-faith and cross-cultural perceptions and misperceptions about women and the law far beyond Islam. There will be a panel discussion and short reception following the screening. Watch the trailer here.

Panel:

  • Chair: Amb. Diana Lady Dougan, Executive Producer, THE JUDGE
  • Dr. Rebecca Reichmann Tavares, Interim Executive Coordinator, UN Secretary General’s Every Woman Every Child Initiative
  • The Honorable M. Margaret McKeown, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals
  • Imam Taha Hassane, Islamic Center of San Diego
  • Professor Emilie Hafner-Burton, Director, Laboratory on International Law and Regulation

A reception will be held after the event.
