Description

United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM)

2008

Women on the Frontline is a video documentary series that shines a light on violence against women and girls. The series takes the viewer to homes, villages and cities around the world where a largely unreported war against females is being waged. Example of what the series include: Nepal, where thousands of women are trafficked each year; Turkey, where killing in the name of honour continues; and Mauritania, where women who have been raped may go to prison.
