Women of Gold - Documentary

Everyday women face challenges towards their empowerment working in the Gold Mines of Geita, Tanzania. In this film, we follow Anna, a strong independent woman working in the mines.

Tanzania is the fourth producer of gold in Africa. Approximately 25 percent of an estimated one million artisanal and small-scale gold miners in Tanzania are women.

Women in small scale mining in Tanzania are characterized by unsafe and unregulated working conditions, illegal mining, under-production and gender-based exclusion.

This documentary is screened internationally and acquired by Dutch national television station NPO. This film came together due to the collaboration with Simavi and Solidaridad.
