About the film: WOMAN gives a voice to 2000 women across 50 different countries as it sheds light on the injustice women are subjected to all over the world and highlights the inner strength of women and their capacity to change the world. Motherhood, education, marriage, financial independence, menstruations or sexuality, this film shares the voices of women as you might have never heard before.
About the Impact Talk: Inspired by the new documentary, WOMAN, this month’s Impact Talk speakers address what it means to be a woman today. In many ways this is a time of unparalleled opportunity. But it is also a period of continuing struggle and upheaval, when even the very definition of the word “woman” is cause for controversy.
