In honor of International Women's Day. Sociologists for Women in Society presents this truly international documentary film that profiles five female activists from four continents working to combat climate change through policy, protest, education, and innovation. This female-directed film powerfully demonstrates how women are transferring knowledge and local networks into hands-on strategies. This collaborative film offers unique perspectives across cultures and generations; A young woman challenges the expansion of oil rigs in the North Sea while a seasoned community organizer interprets satellite weather reports for fisherman struggling to survive on India’s increasingly volatile coast. (48 Mins | Dir. Nupur Basu, Mary Kiio, Iphigénie Marcoux-Fortier & Elizabeth Miller)
