"This important and timely series deals with women's health and the social, cultural and economic factors underlying reproductive choices. Ventre Livre (Ana Luiza Azevedo) paints a grim picture of life for women in Brazil where sterilization and abortion are often the only forms of birth control available. Rishte (Manjira Datta) explores the practice of male sex preference in India and its ramifications for women. The Desired Number (by the award-winning director of The Body Beautiful Ngozi Onwurah) uses the Ibu Eze ceremony in Nigeria to highlight how family planning issues often conflict with traditional family values."--Publishe website.
