The Independent Television Service (ITVS) was created by the U.S. Congress more than 18 years ago to bring underrepresented voices to public television. ITVS is now global - funding independent producers from the U.S. and around the world to tell authentic stories from communities rarely seen in mainstream media. The Women's Empowerment Collection is a free resource for educators, NGOs and community organizations that features four films about remarkable women from Bolivia, Kenya, Israel and Egypt. The film modules come with lesson plans and activities to spark further conversation and investigation, and connect viewers more deeply to the issues in the films.
