"Despite the progress of the international women's movement in exposing and correcting human rights abuses against females, in many countries women are still fighting to attain the most basic of civil liberties. This program contextualizes that struggle by comparing women's rights in the U.S. with the status of women in China, Afghanistan, and Kenya. Hopeful signs such as rising levels of education for girls, female representation in government, and business opportunities for women are contrasted with the continuing practice of age-old antithetical abuses that have yet to be eliminated-nonconsensual marriage and severe domestic violence, to name two-and the demoralizing effect of seeing hard-won rights overturned. Some content may be objectionable. A Films for the Humanities & Sciences Production. A part of the series Global Issues. (26 minutes)."
