Home is part of the “Stand Up for Women! Stand Up for Peace!” documentary-animation film series that aims to increase understanding of gender-based violence amongst public and policy-making audiences. The series challenges the perception of violence against women as a private domestic issue, and situates it instead in the broader social landscape by exploring the intersections and entanglement between gender-based violence on one hand, and conflict, human rights, and precarity on the other.
