Girl Talk: A Local, USA Special

Set in the cutthroat, male-dominated world of high school debate, GIRL TALK tells the compelling story of five girls on the diverse, top-ranked Massachusetts team at Newton South. Often talked over, underrepresented and judged differently than their male counterparts, each girl learns to navigate gender biases, reminding us that equal rights and freedom of expression are worth fighting for.


Fannie Lou Hamer's America

Fannie Lou Hamer's America is a portrait of a civil rights activist and the injustices in America that made her work essential. Through public speeches, personal interviews, and powerful songs of the fearless Mississippi sharecropper-turned-human-rights-activist, Fannie Lou Hamer's America explores and celebrates the lesser-known life of one of the Civil Rights Movement’s greatest leaders.


She Persisted

Through the whispers of doubt, nevertheless, they persisted. In Afghanistan, Mahboba journeys to her classroom against all odds; Crystal climbs the ladder of higher education, aided by some secret admirers; and Joan learns that it’s never too late to radically change her life. Three stories, three interpretations of SHE PERSISTED.


Her Stories

Women and girls from all walks of life are coming together to stand up for racial justice, challenge gender norms and create welcoming, safe spaces for others to use their voices. In an era of the unexpected, we are surrounded by women who have persevered and are making it their mission to open doors for the next generations.

During Women's History Month in March, WORLD Channel celebrates these groundbreaking women, well-known and less-known alike. Explore the stories of women who have defied traditional social standards for the opportunity at equality and equity in new and streaming films this month.
