The panel participants discuss violence and its manifestations in relation to the status of women globally. Violence is connected to economic, social, and political processes stemming from longstanding patriarchal traditions and norms. The panel discussion aired as a three-part documentary on New Zealand television. 

The host of the discussion, Elizabeth Reid, was the first advisor to the Prime Minister of New Zealand on the welfare of women and children in 1973. In 1974, Mahnaz Afkami invited Elizabeth to Iran to head the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) Regional Center for Research on Women in Tehran.
