This is the latest cut of our WMN pilot. We chose this to pilot the collection by profiling Winona LaDuke in Northern Minnesota because she embodies a number of critical issues: sustainable food systems, indigenous rights, first-nation movements, oil and gas extraction, and climate change. She's pushing forward the frontline, and we all benefit when Winona succeeds. WMN is a collection of short documentary film showcasing women around the world as they push forward the frontline on critical human issues. From ancient rites in Hawaii, dignity in the garment industry of Bangladesh, habitat preservation in Thailand, freedom of expression in Afghanistan, to the preservation of sustainable, wild food systems in the Northlands of the United States, women are ushering in a vibrant future for humanity. For every face that you see, and every voice you hear, you'll also have the chance to explore in-depth. Every woman plays her part of the human whole. The WMN series presents the feminine experience in the twenty-first century. Thank you to UN WOMEN, Equality Now, International Labor Rights Forum, The Center for Partnership Studies, the Caring Economy, and many more for helping to get this work started and providing a path forward.
