In the face of many obstacles, we meet a courageous group of women who have organized to change their world.
Throughout India, women are forming 'self-help groups' (SHGs) to combat the many issues facing them. With the great help of Vani Chenguttuwan, we spoke at length with the SHG in Kalugumalai, in the state of Tamil Nadu, about their successes.

We have a good world when we take care of each other, recognize our interdependence, and correct the injustices that erode the fundamental goodness of our society.
Filmed in Late October 2011, we found so many extraordinarily articulate Occupy Wall Street-ers who were willing to say what needed to be said: that we are better when we do not allow a tiny few to degrade the quality of life for many.
