“…we might have known sooner that the most reliable predictor of whether a country is violent within itself – or will use military violence against another country – is not poverty, natural resources, religion, or even degree of democracy; it’s violence against females. It normalizes all other violence.” — Gloria Steinem
Yesterday, Viceland, launched a series with Gloria Steinam called, WOMAN. It’s an eye-opening, heartbreaking documentary/news series that tells the story of women around the world. Particularly how their abuse, disenfranchisement, and oppression limits the growth, stability, and success of communities and countries.
This show is not for the faint of heart. It is powerful and sometimes painful. But it is important to witness the the truth. And here, in personal stories of everyday women, Gloria is showing us the truth and bringing the talking circles of the 60’s and 70’s straight to our computer screens.
Watch, learn, and then let’s create some change.
