The Global Women's Movement

Program #ROSL002. Recorded in Madison, WI on February 07, 1998.

"Women hold up half the sky and they are absolutely the equal of men," declared the new leaders of China in 1949. Inspiring slogans aside, what is the status of women and their struggle for equality? While over the past few decades a global movement has emerged to promote women's rights, it still faces such obstacles as the persistence of patriarchy and traditional notions of subordination and gender roles.
