A Path Appears
Following up on the success of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, this mini series again follows Nicholas Kristof and actor/advocates as they investigate issues of women’s oppression, especially within the United States. Traveling with Malin Akerman, Mia Farrow, Ronan Farrow, Jennifer Garner, Regina Hall, Ashley Judd, Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, and Alfre Woodard to Colombia, Haiti, Kenya, and throughout the United States, the team uncovered the harshest forms of gender-based oppression and human rights violations, as well as the effective solutions being implemented to combat them.
The three-part series aired on PBS as a special presentation of Independent Lens in early 2015 as part of the highly regarded Women and Girls Lead initiative. Through inspiring storytelling, A Path Appears takes viewers on a journey across the country, and around the globe, to drive home the universality of gender inequality and the roots of vulnerability.
