Part of the "Life on the Edge" series. Eritrea's women fought in the war; shall they now liberate themselves from harmful traditional practices? They now face life in villages where girls must be circumcised, wives must obey their husbands, and children are married off as young as 12. Reports suggest that half the women who fought on the front lines are now estranged from their families and live in abject poverty. Despite a new constitution intended to protect women's rights, the old ways-from bride prices to female circumcision-continue to be practiced. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
