Women , Career, and the Community

Contemporary women have a great challenge to express their creativity through different means than creating  a family . In all different societies they have to work against traditional roles and constrained of the  community to create work/life balance. 

These two DVDs show two extreme cases:

Searching for Debra Winger

“A thought-provoking documentary in which Rosanna Arquette talks to the film industry’s most talented and award-winning actresses about the pressures they face as women working in show business.”

The Beauty Academy of Kabul

“In this arresting and optimistic portrait of post-Taliban Afghanistan, a quirky gaggle of Western hair stylists, armed with blow driers and designer scissors, improbably open a school to teach eager Afghan women the high art of fixing hair. Both humorous and subversive, the film offers poignant moments of culture clash and touching moments of feminine solidarity.”
