The 25-minute documentary film covers the personal reflections of 18 leading women’s rights activists in the Global South on the challenges they are facing in their fight for women’s equality. Against All Odds underscores that while women are disproportionately affected by conflict situations and extremism, they are also the key agents of change, upholding communities and families, and engaging in peaceful forms of resistance. These women leaders speak about their strategies to strengthen women’s movements by building alliances, sharing inter-generational experience and expertise, and devising contextual, culture-specific, grassroots-based approaches to empowering women and girls.
