"On a mission towards the opportunity of Equality "
20 April 2016 | by romemubarakSee all my reviews

A fierce woman standing in her own conviction who's words are anecdotal as we enter a new millennium of social change from the bottom up. A change agent who plays her hand well in an all or nothing , no compromise battle to the bitter end. Paving the way for policy makers , future radicals, libertarians and community- action oriented people alike. A splendid expose' of passion fit for the most humane of our society. She knows no bounds and never shows fear to her adversaries. Her intellect supersedes those who doubted her from the very beginning. A journey that will captivate the most conservative in us all. An excellent film of timeless proportions.
