Power Of WomenStreaming Video - 2006
Taking inspiration from the spiritual concept of Shakti, the Great Mother or supreme female deity of the Hindu religion, this program celebrates the power of women to drive social and economic change in India. Female-centric activism propels an organization that combats the practice of child marriage, and another which has created a banking system for the poor. The video also examines a renowned scientist who promotes eco-feminism and a married couple fighting for the rights of the traditionally shunned Dalit caste. These stories support the idea that Shakti is a phenomenon to be reckoned with-a source of creative energy for cultural transformation.
