NARRATED BY BELLA ABZUG
Documenting the largest global gathering of women in history, we witness the emergence of an inspiring global movement of women working to improve their communities. The Beijing Conference in 1995 produced the strongest consensus on women's equality, empowerment and justice ever endorsed by governments.
To Empower Women is a moving tribute to the multitude of actions women worldwide are taking.
"It captured the energy and focus of an important and historic event"

'Smith's video makes us aware of the tremendous
challenges facing women everywhere but at the same time gives
us hope for a better world through the words of her interviewees,
all of them women of strength, vision, courage and practicality."
— Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
