Not The Numbers Game (BBC Version)

The role of women in solving development and population problems worldwide.

A printer-friendly version of this page 44 minutes
Produced by Emily Marlow and Jenny Richards for TVE and BBC Worldwide Television

The six 10-minute films that make up the series Not the Numbers Game were edited into a single 44-minute film for broadcast on the BBC. It's a thought-provoking look at the role women in various countries are playing to solve the twin problems of population and development. The stories include: women in India who are demanding the basic services they need for a dignified life; women in Uganda who are calling for a halt to the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation; a second wife working endless jobs in Kenya to afford school and hope for her children; teenage pregnancy and machismo in Peru; industrial employment in Indonesia; and the status of women on postwar Cambodia.

In this BBC version the story from Bosnia in the original series was replaced with a story from Kenya.
