Description

In 1994, government leaders signed an agreement aimed at improving the lives of women worldwide. This video explores how women from very different cultures are taking on the status quo. Stories look at how Afghan women refugees are returning to start over in Kabul; the female entrepreneurs of Nigeria who are denied recognition of their contribution to the economy; a teenager try to get an education in Pakistan; and the 'inherited widows' of Kenya.
