The film highlights the cases of prominent women leaders from Burundi, Canada, Ireland, Jordan, Namibia, Norway, Peru, the Philippines, South Africa and Uganda. In each of the profiled testimonials, women share their personal journeys in politics and strategies on how to succeed in it. The goal of the film is to showcase the successful paths of women in politics, to encourage other women to enter politics illustrating that it is not an unattainable realm for them, and to create role models for women. The film was officially launched at the 53rd Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in New York.
