The Panel will discuss the findings of Judged for More than Her Crime: A Global Overview of Women Facing the Death Penalty. This groundbreaking study highlights for the first time the stories and needs of women facing the death penalty around the world, the intersectional discrimination they face before and during trial, and the reality of their lives (and sometimes their children’s lives) on death row. We will be joined by John Carlson, the lawyer of  Brenda Andrew, whose case is highlighted in the report as an example of gender bias during her trial.

This event also celebrates the launch of the Alice Project, which combines research, advocacy, and legal representation for women facing the death penalty to illuminate their unique challenges and draw connections between the causes and consequences of the wrongs they suffer.

Registration is now closed for this event.
