The UMaine School of Law’s Justice for Women Lecture Series brings a distinguished speaker to Maine annually to present a public lecture and to contribute to a global conversation about justice for women and girls. Leymah Gbowee, Nobel Peace Laureate and the social worker who started the movement depicted in the film Pray the Devil Back to Hell, will deliver the second annual lecture. During her visit, Ms. Gbowee will engage with students, faculty, and an array of community members to discuss challenges for women and girls in the developing world and their relevance to people in Maine.
