Women on the Frontline is a brutally honest account of the silent war being waged against women across the world. As of January 2008, 185 countries were party to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. Yet UN estimates show that violent abuses not only persist, but are on the rise. Introduced by Annie Lennox and shot by all-women crews in countries such as Mauritania, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Nepal, and Colombia, these films tell the personal stories of the courageous women who have survived abuses and now want their voices to be heard.
