Summary
AIDS: The Woman's Story travels to Kenya, Brazil and Thailand to tell the personal stories of women with AIDS. Set against a background of disease, poverty and social subjugation this is a story of vitality and will power, and of women who have the courage to fight against reigning cultural and religious traditions. Most women become HIV-infected from their husbands who can demand sex any time they want it. Many had not heard of the disease until they were diagnosed with it. And many are left widows before they become very ill. Monique from Nairobi, says, "If I had to choose between the antiviral drugs or changing the mentality of men, I would choose the mentality. Because while taking the drugs, you still need support, love and care, so the attitude has to change." While these women have made progress in their own communities, there is still much to be done at national levels. The documentary asks why AIDS prevention is not more of a priority in many underdeveloped countries. It looks at the ways existing structures of power and influence can make a difference at the international level. Former President Bill Clinton discusses how this global epidemic affects all of us -- economically, if not physically. It was Clinton who convinced President Mbeki of South Africa of the need to place AIDS at the top of his political agenda, proving that international solidarity in the fight against AIDS can deliver impressive results
