DescriptionWomen in two very different 'Third World' environments are shown making their own efforts to improve their circumstances and achieve equal rights. The two areas are La Paz, Bolivia, and rural Zimbabwe, but for these women the critical issue is the same as for women throughout the 'Third World': how to ensure that their needs are taken into consideration in the formulation of economic policies and development strategies. An excellent background to the study of the relationship between the struggle for women's rights and issues in development. 'As I see it, we are looked down on by society, by husbands and by our own children, who see us as people of no importance.' (Dominga Velasquez)
