21st Century to PrehistoryStreaming Video - 2006
In 1524, Venezuela was the first country with a woman ruler-on Margarita Island. Beginning there, this program traces the role of women in the nation's profitable oil industry, and their struggle with oil companies to protect the environment. The discussion is then extended to what general economic opportunities (or lack of them) are available to women within the culture-from drug smuggling to engineering-and the ongoing racism and violence that keep many women living in poverty.
