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

To bridge the growing gap between the young and the old, she lets Naalak, an elder, and Danny, a young policeman from Kangirsujuaq, tell us what they think.
