About

WOMAN by WOMAN: New Hope for the Villages of India documents progressive change for women in rural India. Fighting for their rights in a gender-biased culture, these women emerge as community leaders when given the chance to participate. They are transformed as they teach other women about taboo subjects, such as reproductive health and their own bodies.

Though filmed in India, its message of female self-empowerment in the shadow of a male-dominated society is universal. An excellent supplement for women's studies, sociology, cultural anthropology and political science classes.
