WVN Films in the Sptlight
Each month, WVN brings you a curated selection of films revolving around an important theme in the fight for women’s global rights.
Women and Identity
The women in these films want to be active participants in the world. For some, that means carrying on tradition in the face of modernization, and for others, that means breaking ties with past generations and making new choices. Each choice comes with its own set of risks: Will the country girl be taken advantage of in the big city? Will a daughter’s decision to stray from her mother’s tradition damage their relationship? Watch these films now to explore these ideas and more.

Volume 5, Number 2
When a body has cells that attack itself it is called a cancer or an immune disorder. Similarly, I assert that violence in general, and male violence toward women in specific, is to the globe what HIV/ AIDS is to the body: it creates an unhealthy host that makes it susceptible to other diseases. Therefore, empowering women and girls to stop an assault in the moment, and also raising children to see that females are not inherently victims of male violence could allow the planet to recover sufficiently to take on other areas of violence.
