On Thursday, October 16th, UN Women for Peace Association (UNWFPA) hosted a screening of the new HBO documentary, Private Violence. The UN Alliance of Civilizations sponsored the event. Guests gathered at 6:00pm in ECOSOC Chamber at the United Nations and were treated to a pre-screening program, which included welcoming remarks from Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, wife of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and patron of UNWFPA, Muna Rihani Al-Nasser, chair of UNWFPA, Elizabeth Flores Flake, the Ambassador of Honduras to ​the UN, Cynthia Hill, director and producer of Private Violence, and Kit Gruelle,​ a producer, one of the subjects of the documentary, and an advocate for ending violence against women. Fox’s Uma Pemmaraju emceed the brief program.

The event was attended by distinguished guests from HBO, the United Nations, academia, and the private sector, including Nancy Abraham, Carole Acunto, Muna Rihani Al-Nasser, Jennifer Bawden, Rema DuPont, Kit Gruelle, Cynthia Hill, Nassrin Irmoloo, Jana Jaffe, Elizabeth Flores Flake, Rex Miller, Valbona Neritani, Uma Pemmaraju, Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, Barbara Winston, and many others

Private Violence is a documentary about domestic violence. It highlights the personal experiences of Deanna Walter and Kit Gruelle and challenges many entrenched and misleading assumptions about domestic abuse. The film provides a lens into a world that is largely invisible. Immensely powerful, Private Violence is being screened at various locations across the United States.

Muna Rihani Al-Nasser, chair of UNWFPA, strongly proclaimed in her introductory remarks, "It is time to pressure governments, members of law enforcements, and policy makers, to change the laws and adopt news strict jurisdictions and more educational and awareness programs. It is also the responsibility of each one of us to stand together and make a difference.”

She added, "It is often incorrectly believed that violence against women is specific to non-western regions. Unfortunately, violence committed against women is a destructive action that affects the majority of the world, including the United States. Today, it is estimated that in the United States domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between the ages of 15 to 44; 31 percent of women have been physically abused by an intimate partner at some point in their lives; one woman is beaten by her husband or partner every 15 seconds, believe it or not; and one in ten High School female students have been hit by a boyfriend.”

UN Women for Peace Association, founded in 2008 under the patronage of H.E. Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, seeks to promote and advance the goals of UN agencies who provide opportunities for women through social, cultural, educational, and empowerment programs under the banner of a global peace building process. All of UNWFPA’s proceeds go directly to the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women, which aims to prevent violence against women and girls, provides services and programs to those affected by violence, and strengthens the implementation of laws and policies on such violence.
