Action Request: Various

It’s not very often that the Women's Edge Coalition asks you to watch TV. This time, we ask: watch, and then take action.

Tomorrow, Tuesday October 10, many PBS stations will air the national broadcast premiere of Maquilapolis, a new documentary on women workers in maquila or sweatshop factories. It takes you inside the lives of maquila women: their homes and families, the dangers they face at work, and their responses. It’s very vivid.

After you watch, take action.

The film shows you the down side of maquilas: low pay, layoffs, exposure to toxic chemicals. But don’t get stuck there. Instead, use our Viewer’s Guide to learn more about maquilas, and about the new resources and opportunities that would be created for poor women by the “GROWTH Act.” The GROWTH Act, a bill developed by the Women’s Edge Coalition, would reshape U.S. assistance and trade policy to increase economic opportunity for women around the world – microcredit, business loans, training, property rights, and more.

I need your help to get that powerful piece of legislation passed. Our Viewer’s Guide tells you how.

Please watch Maquilapolis on Tuesday, then take the simple action that can provide help and hope to millions of working and unemployed women around the world.

Thank you!

Warmly,

Barb Gottlieb
Director of Outreach & Membership
