“Iron Ladies of Liberia”

Dear Colleagues & Friends,

I am writing to let you know about a timely new collection of documentaries about Women in Leadership & Politics now available from Women Make Movies.

 The centerpiece of the collection is IRON LADIES OF LIBERIA, which was recently broadcast on the Emmy® Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens. This new WMM Release profiles Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Africa’s first freely-elected female head of state, as she faces the daunting task of lifting her country from debt and devastation. 

Highlighting remarkable women leaders from around the world, the six essential educational resources in this collection present a vital global perspective on women and the power of political change. From the courageous struggles of Afghani freedom fighter Malalai Joya in the award-winning ENEMIES OF HAPPINESS, to those of three American women during the Civil Rights movement in the best-selling STANDING ON MY SISTER’S SHOULDERS, these films are an inspiring and thought provoking addition to any discourse on women in politics!

Sincerely, 

Sarah Reynolds
