Fundamental: Gender Justice, No Exceptions Film Series
In the Fundamental film series you'll meet grassroots movements and community leaders who are standing up for our fundamental human rights. The series profiles a distinct set of remarkable grassroots leaders working on issues from ending child, early, and forced marriage in Pakistan to pursuing LGBTQI+ liberation in Georgia. These incredible leaders are at the frontlines of fighting for gender justice, and mobilizing to write new futures for themselves, their societies, and the world.
This documentary film series is part of Global Fund for Women: Champions for Equality.
GFW supports courageous activists who are fighting for justice and equality in their communities. We envision a world in which movements for gender justice have transformed power and privilege for a few into equity and equality for all.
