Women in Eritrea are often depicted as Africa's most liberated sisterhood. They fought on the front lines in the country's 30-year war of independence. But in Eritrea's poor rural heartland, woman's liberation is a war still being fought. And the challenge is to convince women themselves of the need for change. This documentary tells the stories of three rural women and explores what the government and National Union of Eritrean Women in partnership with IFAD are doing to help improve women's lives.
