Empowering Girls & Women

Six flicks that address 'the girl effect' -- the payoff of investing in women worldwide.

Radical Womanhood blogger Carolyn McCulley is impressed with the recent book, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. So she is compiling a list of documentaries "in order to help us all understand the plight of women in other nations."

Her initial list includes these six films: A Walk to Beautiful, Lumo, Mrs. Goundo's Daughter, Afghan Star, As We Forgive, and At the End of Slavery.

To that list I would add Pray the Devil Back to Hell (mentioned here) and The Stoning of Soraya M. What other films would you recommend?


The Duchess.

Awesome... just added these to my Netflix queue, except for As We Forgive, which I couldn't find.
