The evolution of the Pro-Democracy Movement in Nigeria finds the participation of women in leadership roles.

This feature length documentary film traces the evolution of the Pro-Democracy Movement in Nigeria and efforts to increase the participation of women in leadership roles. Following the annulment of her father's victory in Nigeria's Presidential Election and her mother's assassination by agents of the military dictatorship, Hafsat Abiola faces the challenge of transforming a corrupt culture of governance into a democracy capable of serving Nigeria's most marginalized population: women.

US/NG, 2014, 75 min., Dir. Joanna Lipper
