||"The documentary weaves together the daily life stories of Khady, Bilkusben, Oraiza, Dona Antonia, and Gila who, through candor and humor, infuse their communities with a passion for change. The women spearhead rainforest preservation (women working as rubber-tappers in the Brazilian rainforest); sustain a vast co-operative of rural women (India: SEWA: the largest trades union in the world with 700,000 members); promote an end to female genital cutting (FGC) (Senegal: communities abandoning FGC); strengthen opposition to the Israeli occupation of Palestine (Women in Black in Jerusalem); maintain a farm, Navdanya (in the foothills of the Himalayas) to further economic independence and biodiversity by preserving women's role as seed keepers"--The shape of water movie website.
