A Powerful Noise
A Powerful Noise: The impact of one voice. The power of many.
Hahn is an HIV-positive widow in Vietnam. Nada, a survivor of the Bosnian war.
And Jacqueline works the slums of Bamako, Mali. Three very different lives.
Three vastly different worlds. But they share something in common: Power.
These ordinary women are each overcoming deep-seeded gender barriers to
rise up and claim a voice in their societies. Through their empowerment and the
ability to empower others, Hahn, Nada and Jacqueline are sparking remarkable
and unprecedented changes. Fighting AIDS. Educating girls. Rebuilding communities.
Through compelling verite’-style narratives, A Powerful Noise takes you inside the
lives of these women to witness their daily challenges and their significant victories
over poverty and oppression. Their stories are both personal and unique, yet illustrate
larger issues affecting millions of marginalized women worldwide. A Powerful Noise
is a meditation on the inherent potential of women to change the world.
