WOMAN by WOMAN documents the story of progressive change for women in some of the least developed villages of India. Vivid images portray the humanity of the people, the beauty of the countryside, as well as the poignant toll of centuries of poverty. In the film we meet women who are coming out of seclusion in order to serve in their communities.

We also meet individuals who support these efforts - a woman who teaches village women to become family planning counselors; a village husband who works side-by-side with his wife, in a culture which is traditionally male-dominated; a mother-in-law who encourages her daughter-in-law to advance in the community rather than seclude herself in the house. The film documents the work of Janani, one of the non-profit groups in India which works to improve the status of Indian village women and men by making family planning resources and information widely available.
