Abstract:

Women living in third-world nations often must defy repressive social customs and religious doctrines in order to become financial contributors to their families and villages. This program focuses on the growing movement of courageous women in Bangladesh who, with the assistance of aid societies, run profitable cottage industries, often risking severe reprisals. As these determined women swell the working ranks of their village communities-significantly raising the standard of living for all-traditional patriarchal structures must accommodate them as coequals in business-or face open rebellion. A Deutsche Welle production.
