Cornell Center on the Death Penalty Worldwide and the Berger Legal Studies Program invite you to:
Judged for More than Her Crime: Women on Death Row
Tuesday, February 12, 12:30–2:30 pm, Zhu Faculty Room, L28, Hughes Hall
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.
The event will also be livestreamed.
Lunch will be provided to the first 60 people who RSVP by February 7th
