FIRST SEGMENT – Interviews with director ALISON REID and producer PAUL ZIMIC on their film THE WOMAN WHO LOVES GIRAFFES. Alison is one of the few lesbian directors in Hollywood. Before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and before Dian Fossey left to find mountain gorillas, 23 year old biologist ANNE INNIS DAGG made a solo journey into South Africa. Being a woman doing this in 1956, she had to overcome many sexist barriers to do her work. She has sounded the alarm for the giraffes of Africa and the environmental alarm about what is happening to biological diversity on our planet.
SECOND SEGMENT – Interviews with TAMMARA BILLIK and MICHELE NEFF HERNANDEZ on the event CAMP WIDOW sponsored by Soaring Spirits. This organization is committed to helping widows and widowers deal with the loss of a spouse and living beyond that death. Soaring Spirits has now created a weekend for LGBT widows and widowers to process their grief.
THIRD SEGMENT – The 3 major faiths Judaism, Muslim and Christianity have each historically subjected woman to second class status. So what happens when a woman takes charge in each of these faiths to bring about cultural and social evolution? A deep discussion on religion, faith, women, sexism, misogyny, setbacks and progress with RABBI DENISE EGER from Temple Kol Ami, REVEREND DENYSE BARNES from First United Methodist Church of Hollywood and ANI ZONNEVELD from Muslims for Progressive Values.
