Celebrating Women’s History Month in Film

Posted on March 17, 2011

For 20 years ITVS has been responsible for showcasing innovative and eye-opening programming focusing on the shared and unique experiences of women worldwide.


Our documentaries have covered everything from glass-ceiling-shattering female heads of state to the grassroots movements in developing nations led by women who refused to accept no for an answer. Visit our new Women’s History Month page and explore content that represent a cross-section of our best programming about remarkable women, including some great resources for educators to use in their classrooms.

Plus, revisit our chat with PBS NEWSHOUR on empowering women in The Congo and beyond. Held on International Women’s Day, the discussion included the Managing Director of Amnesty International, along with the filmmakers and subject of Pushing the Elephant.
