A Question of Rights Series
World of Difference
Introduction

Women and human rights around the world.

A printer-friendly version of this page

12 minutes
Directed by Richard Stanley
Produced by Emily Marlow & Jenny Richards, Television Trust for the Environment



According to a 1997 report from the United Nations Population Fund, denial of women's human rights to education and reproductive health care constitutes a violation of human rights on a massive scale. A QUESTION OF RIGHTS shows the reality of the report's finding for women around the world.

The first film sets the scene, tracing the background to the international agreements on women rights. The late Bella Abzug, Dr. Nafis Sadiq and others show that when women are excluded from basic rights and decision-making, the economy, development, and environment suffer.

Other titles in the series are:

Girls from Chaka Street - The break-up of the Soviet Union leaves some women with few options but prostitution.

House on Fire - Breaking the cycle of domestic violence.

Young Wives' Tales - Very early marriage threatens girls' health and survival.

Caught in the Crossfire - Plight of women in Fiji.
