Marilyn Waring on women and economics ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this film New Zealand politician and activist Marilyn Waring spends a day with local women her age in several developing countries. She witnesses the enormous, unrecorded, unacknowledged extent of women's work. Women remain more than 50 per cent of the world's population, yet hold no more than 10 per cent of the seats in national legislatures. In one government in three, there are no women in the highest decision making bodies. This video takes a hard look at the disparity between what women contribute to communities and how their work is valued

Marilyn Waring on politics local & global by Marilyn Waring ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
By approaching politics from the viewpoint of the average citizen, Marilyn Waring challenges the assumption that the systems which currently determine how the world does business are adequately meeting the needs of both local and global communities.
