Hearing people's stories is an effective way to get a sense of the complexities of people's lives, as well as to see the commitment, vision, humor, and compassion underlying empowering social actions. Women and Social Action captures on videotape the stories of over 70 women and men who are involved in social action, as well as the experiences of students in the course. Through people' s stories, we gain a richer understanding of barriers women face, varied goals and strategies for social change, and the rewards and challenges of social action.
