Summary
Three women from three African countries, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Burkina Faso, tell of their struggle to feed their families. Their stories give a human context to Africa s relentless slide into perpetual famine. We see how the efforts of women, who in fact grow 75% of Africa s food, are so often frustrated by the men in their villages as well as by outside business interests. They receive little help from their husbands who regard farming as demeaning, fit only for women. Often the husbands sell the land for a quick profit. This film gives insight into the women s existence and shows how they are challenging traditional male authority. Their stories are a powerful plea for support of their role in alleviating famine
