|Description:||Project was born at the conferenc eWomen Empowering Communication in Bangkok where participants signed up to make a five-minute video on a subject of the own choosing. Women from over 10 countries took part - the end result is a video anthology of ten five-minute peices from the Cook Islands to Greece, India to New Zealand, each highlighting one of the sub-themes of the Beijing conference, in both documentary and drama formats. Films include a moving dramatization of an Indian girl raised a boy, and an interview with a Polynesian woman, who undertook a voyage in one of their traditional boats, and refused to take on the role of the cook.|
