Women United (Mujeres Unidas) spotlights indigenous women's collective work in the autonomous municipality of 17 de Noviembre (November 17), Chiapas, Mexico. Collectives have become a keystone for many Chiapaneco women involved in the movement for social and economic justice. Featuring a collective bakery, store and vegetable garden, viewers see vivid imagery of women's work interspersed with interviews about how collectives have changed and strengthened the fabric of community life.

 

Documental realizado en su mayoría por mujeres Tzeltales, donde ellas hablan de la importancia de organizarse y del trabajo colectivo de las mujeres en el campo.
