Why Get Married? [electronic resource]

An estimated half of all marriages end in divorce-so how is it that people still have faith in the institution? Why do they gamble with their future happiness by getting married? In this documentary, director Anne Stirling takes a fresh look at the social, historical, and emotional aspects of marriage after her divorce. Stirling figures that if she asks enough questions of friends, family members, and experts, she'll be able to solve the puzzle of why people wed.

Umoja, the Village Where Men Are Forbidden [electronic resource]

In the Samburu district of Kenya, women have only the rights they can seize for themselves. To break free from spousal abuse, forced marriage, genital mutilation, and the spread of HIV/AIDS-and to defend themselves against rape by local British soldiers-a group of abandoned Samburu women founded Umoja, a village off-limits to men. Two decades on, the tiny community is thriving, but in a growing climate of menace as the Samburu men seek any means to destroy Umoja and reestablish the age-old status quo. Filmed on location, this program gives a voice to town matriarch Rebecca Lolosoli and other villagers who communicate their determination to remain free while painting a realistic picture of their uphill battle to establish gender equality in the region-and to simply survive.
