Product Description:

Human rights advocates recognize that a society's well-being can be measured by its treatment of women. This inspiring documentary short illustrates that claim with an exposé of how community activists in two of the world's most gender-oppressive countries, India and Afghanistan, are attempting to redress women's inequality through social and economic services like education and microloans.

Description by Choices:

Awakening documents the social and economic empowerment of women in Afghanistan and India whose roles have traditionally been restricted by their cultures. Awakened to new possibilities through education and access to micro-loans these women are redefining their roles in society. In Bihar, India's poorest state, Sister Mary Lobo organizes village women into groups where they learn to save small sums and invest their capital as a group. In Afghanistan, the nation's first woman-led micro-finance institution believes the nation's long-term success is dependent on women's economic freedom.
