Made in Bangladesh

How do you learn to speak out when everyone expects you to be silent? Shimu, 23, works in a clothing factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Faced with often grueling, at times unsafe working conditions, she starts a union with her co-workers. Despite threats from management and her husband’s disapproval, Shimu embraces the power of collective action.

Oil and Water

In a drought-prone, oil-rich area in Northern Kenya, a community’s ancestral land has been taken for oil extraction. But after the women of the community — who traditionally have no say in things related to land — see that the promise of jobs, money and reliable water never materialize, they rally together to protect their future and fight greed, patriarchy and corrupt politics.
