Description

Here are full-length unedited speeches from Camila Batmanghelidjh of Kids Company, peace campaigner Scilla Elworthy, evolutionary biologist Elisabet Sahtouris, Polly Higgins the lawyer campaigning to make ecocide a crime against peace, wildlife filmmaker Madelaine Westwood who ably demonstrates that a woman of small stature and delicate voice can have the biggest clout when creatively in relation with a camera, human rights activist Hafsat Abiola-Costello, spellbinding novelist Jay Griffiths, Kirsty Schneeberger who went to the UN in her early 20s asking "how old will you be in 2050?", Azul Valerie-Thome who set up a pioneering project growing food on the roof of a supermarket, Rachel Morrison with "Thin Girls", a song she wrote after a friend's daughter died from anorexia, Louise Burfitt-Dons encouraging us all to get up and speak, plus the introductory speech, and practice, from Women on Fire founder Judith Seelig. The camera work's a bit jumpy from time to time, but no matter, the speeches are gold dust. Women on Fire supports and promotes women as decision makers. Its format is broad, connecting up women through conventional and radical approaches. Women on Fire is run by a small team of women under the guidance of a female shaman.
