Summary: Surveys social conditions faced by women in Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal and Benin, including circumcision, forced marriage, AIDS, and economic repression. Examines grass-roots efforts toward education and improvement as Africa opens to democracy
Summary: In Femmes Aux Yeux Ouverts award-winning Togolese filmmaker Anne-Laure Folly presents portraits of contemporary African women in four West African countries: Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal and Benin. The movie shows that women are organizing at the grassroots level to play a prominent role in Africa's current opening to democracy. It demonstrates why Africa's development is inextricably linked to the social and economic progress of its women. (California Newsreel, 1994)
