"A disturbing and powerful glimpse into the oppression of women, children, and even whole societies as it occurs today...Sociologists who teach collective behaviour and social movements, feminist scholars who teach with a global slant, and all those needing some critical content will find these 30 minute films a valuable resource."
The Electronic Journal of Sociology

"All the films in the Triumph over Terror series serve to show us that, although progress has been made in the last 50 years, there is still much to be done. The stories are informative and moving, and the reliance on interviews with those actually affected by the policies described adds a human dimension sometimes lacking in studies of human rights."
The Online Journal of Peace and Conflict Resolution
