Series: Global Issues Series
In this balanced programme we explore exactly what globalisation is - in theory and practice, we meet the people suffering and those benefiting from it and look into the future to see what lies ahead.
The term 'women's rights' refers to the freedoms and entitlements of women across the globe. On many levels, women today can do anything men can do. From politics to law, business to government, there are many examples of women successfully taking on the game and winning. Yet in some countries violence and discrimination still enslave and hold down many women. In this programme we examine the history of the women's movement, women and fundamentalism, and poverty and AIDS meeting women from all over the world and hearing their stories. This is an engaging overview of the rights of women today. Show Less
