This documentary was very eye opening. We all know that women inequality is an issue in the world, but how deep does that issue go? Being a young women in America there are ( what are considered to some) little things that our considered unequal when it comes to women. For instance how men get paid more than women working the same job but some of our issues in America are nothing compared to those of third world countries. I could not believe how some women in Africa go through the process of genital mutilation. That was just insane to me, but in their culture it so normal. Instances like this make me even more thankful to be in America and that my culture (African American, Caucasian, and Native American) in its present day does not follow those old traditions.
