    • Synopsis
    • WOMAN is a worldwide project giving a voice to 2000 women across 50 different countries. Despite its very large scale, the film offers an intimate portrait of those who constitute half of the humanity. It is an opportunity to shed light on the injustices women are subjected to all over the world, but what WOMAN would like to underline most is the inner strength of women and their capacity to change the world despite all the difficulties they are facing.

      Based on first-person encounters, the project deals with topics such as motherhood, education, marriage or financial independence but also menstruations or sexuality. You will discover the voices of women as you have never heard them before. The film puts together hundreds of testimonies of very different women, from Heads of States to beauty queens and bus drivers to farmers from remote areas delivering a more comprehensive picture of what it means to be a woman in today’s world.
