Honorable Murder [electronic resource]

In many Middle Eastern countries, honor is so highly prized that it is considered more valuable than life itself. This program examines the code of conduct that makes each woman a sacred vessel of her family's honor-and the practice of atoning for any family member's breach of that code with her blood. Scholars, judges, and clergymen discuss the culturally sanctioned practice of "honorable murder," while fathers, brothers, and mothers talk about the communal pressure to adhere to the honor code and how the loss of daughters and sisters has affected their lives. Interviews with some of the "lucky" ones-women who were imprisoned rather than executed-are also included.

Geisha [electronic resource]

Their world is ruled by a strict code of privacy and silence, and in Japan their title is a byword for exotic allure. Called "entertainers" by some and "prostitutes" by others, the geisha are a secretive sorority in high demand by members of Japan's wealthy elite. Filmed in collaboration with Arthur Golden, author of the best-selling Memoirs of a Geisha, this program captures the geisha mystique while documenting the experiences of two maiko, geisha-in-training. Additional interviews with clients, patrons, and others offer insights into contemporary Japanese culture and a profession that is slowly fading away.

Lives Together, Worlds Apart [electronic resource]: Men and Women in a Time of Change

Drawing on case studies from first- and third-world nations, this program exposes the "gender apartheid" that has led to the marginalization of women around the world through violence and poverty. Commentary by Kofi Annan, secretary general of the UN; Festus Mogae, president of Botswana; and Margaret Jay, Britain's minister for women, as well as by many grassroots leaders reveals the victimization that is occurring through educational neglect, unfair labor practices, spouse abuse, and inadequate reproductive healthcare. The positive effects of rural empowerment programs, battered women refuges, and free health and legal counseling are also presented-but will cuts in funding sweep away the good that these initiatives have done?

Now With Bill Moyers [electronic resource]: Katie Roiphe on Pornography, Censorship, and Feminism

How damaging to society, and women in particular, is the proliferation of pornography? And how is the tension resolved between community standards and First Amendment rights? In this program, Bill Moyers talks to Katie Roiphe, feminist critic and author of The Morning After: Sex, Fear, and Feminism. Expanding on many of the ideas in her book, Roiphe discusses how restrictions on pornography could lead to more general censorship, while widespread access actually undermines pornography's fascination.
