BurkinaAllAboutWomen

Seeking to undo stereotypes about African women by looking at the professional lives of women in Burkina Faso, the film talks to a firefighter, a swimmer, a mushroom biologist, a mechanic, an astrophysicist, a rapper, and more–allowing women (all inspired by the legendary Princess Yennenga) to give voice to their own unique experience.
