Summary
As Asian economies boom and their governments grapple with claims for democracy and human rights, women have begun to play a key role in reshaping the traditionally male dominated culture of southeast Asia and Indonesia is no exception. Women have often held second place in Indonesia. They have been valued as wives and mothers, but denied the educational and legal opportunities offered to men. As workers, they have suffered from sexual discrimination. Politically they are poorly represented and culturally, they are increasingly under pressure from the Moslem religion to cover up and stay home. This film looks at three Indonesian women of different professions - a lawyer, a rock star, and a TV journalist. This film shows their obstacles and victories and how they are fighting back and finding a voice. Director: Sally Ingleton
