According to a 1997 report from the United Nations Population Fund, denial of women's human rights to education and reproductive health care constitutes a violation of human rights on a massive scale. This first film in the series “A Question of Rights”, sets the scene, tracing the background to the international agreements on women rights. Host Bella Abzug shows that when women are excluded from basic rights and decision making, the economy, development, and environment suffer.
