Not the Numbers Game Series
Fighting Back

Women in Bosnia are rebuilding war-torn lives.

A printer-friendly version of this page 9 minutes
Directed by Nadja Mehmedbasic
Produced by Emily Marlow and Jenny Richards for Television Trust for the Environment

"When both my sons were killed during the bombing," recalls Halida, "I had to learn how to start my life over again."

The civil war in Bosnia was characterized by genocide and extraordinary cruelty - with women's rights violated on all sides. This film tells the inspiring story of three women who have rebuilt their lives. Bulka took in two orphaned girls; Maja has given her severely wounded husband the will to live; and Halida founded a network of bereaved mothers.

Other titles in the series are:

Mothers of Malappuram - Literacy and access to health services slow population growth in India.

Land of Widows - A midwife in post civil war Cambodia helps other poor women with health services.

On the Way - A new sex education project in Peru combats teenage pregnancy.

The Cutting Edge - A Ugandan project attempts to change attitudes about female genital mutilation.

Invisible Garments, Expensive Soles - Nike and other multinationals are moving production to developing countries like Indonesia.
