Why Should Men Care?

Watch Matt Damon: Why Should Men Care? on PBS. See more from Women War and Peace.

Also in the Women War and Peace series is I Came to Testify, which is about the 16 Bosnian women who testified at the war tribunals and got rape prosecuted as a crime against humanity--the first time that has ever occurred. As the film points out, the tribunals are largely symbolic, and those 16 women helped prosecute three of the Serbian organizers, while in their hometown many other rape victims have never confronted their rapists, and it is likely that they never will. It's a rough watch, but I recommend it.

Check out this clip of Matt Damon, the narrator of I Came to Testify, talking about why men need to be concerned with the plight of women.
