Study Up for ‘Think’: Empowering Women [Video]

Feb 2, 2015

Solving poverty and widening access to education start with equipping women to excel in their lives, especially young mothers. We'll get a glimpse at programs around the world and the individuals fighting to help women in the documentary series A Path Appears

Today at noon, Think host Krys Boyd will talk with series executive producer and director Maro Chermayeff. The documentary series follows the lives of young women pushing against difficult boundaries set against them - women who've fallen into prostitution in Colombia; young moms who had to drop out of school when they got pregnant in West Virginia. 

Reporters Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn and high-profile advocates like Malin Akerman, Mia Farrow, and Jennifer Garner, who visit efforts in Kenya, Haiti and West Virginia among other places.

A raw view into the lives of the women - both the clients of these services and the women who run nonprofits and foundations - is the mission. 

A Path Appears will air tonight at 9 p.m. on KERA TV. Watch the trailer:
