A Woman's Place - Short Stories Series
Teach a Woman How to Fish And...

Sea farming empowers women in Fiji.

A printer-friendly version of this page

10 minutes
Directed by Amelia Simmons
Produced by Pasifika Productions with TVE



Like so many inhabitants of small island states, the Pacific islanders of Kiribati and Fiji are faced with overpopulation, resource depletion, poor diet and a scarcity of fresh water. But an innovative scheme to train women in new sea farming techniques is not only giving them the opportunity to develop their own income-generating skills but has also given them a greater voice in how family income is spent and in how their villages are run.

Other titles in the series are:

Dry Days In Dobbagunta - Literacy program spurs anti-liquor campaign in rural India and empowers women.

A Healthy Start - The debate over women's health care in South Africa.

The Alarm Rings Softly - Caribbean women use drama and reggae to fight domestic violence.

The Amahs of Hong Kong - Filipino women exploited as maids in Hong Kong.

Footprints of Sorrow - Guatemalan war widows fighting for human rights.
