Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide (Episode #101)
KQED World: Wed, Mar 6, 2013 -- 5:00 AM
This 4-hour documentary was filmed in 10 countries and follows Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn (authors of the book by the same name), and celebrity activists America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union, and Olivia Wilde on a journey to tell the stories of inspiring, courageous individuals. Across the globe oppression is being confronted, and real meaningful solutions are being fashioned through health care, education, and economic empowerment for women and girls. The linked problems of sex trafficking and forced prostitution, gender-based violence, and maternal mortality - which needlessly claim one woman every 90 seconds - present to us the single most vital opportunity of our time: the opportunity to make a change. All over the world women are seizing this opportunity.
