Crossing The Gender Gap
More often than not, the lives of women tend to be hidden behind tradition, poverty, and isolation. Compared with men, the stories of women just aren't told. But the documentaries featured in this ViewChange collection put women in front of the lens and behind it. Through photography, film, and animation, these films show us what it means to be a woman in the poorest countries in the world. Take a look across the global gender gap, and see the Grand Prize winner of ViewChange Film Contest.
