Mothers and daughters: rights and choices over time

This video describes the rights and choices of one family in Moldova, which has 4 generations of women: 101-year-old great-grandmother, grandmother, mother and grand-daughter 11 years old. Through the lenses of different generations we see how the changes in the perceptions and attitudes towards the role of women in society, the number of children desired, the age of marriage, have evolved.

The video was produced to suport the launch of the UNFPA State of the World Population Report 2019, dedicated to the women's reproductive rights and health in recent decades, in the context of 50 years anniversary of UNFPA's work and 25 years since the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo (ICPD).
