Description

Head of the Council of Canadians, social justice activist Maude Barlow has challenged the winner-take-all philosophy driving the global economy. This film shows Barlow as she battles for social programs and inspires Canadians to retake control over their communities and their nation. This is both a primer for social activism, and a political biography of Barlow's transformation from a stay-at-home mother to a feminist political activist.
