A New Dawn is a short film from Nigeria‘s Create Her Space Project, featuring Kate Henshaw, Joke Silva, Nita George, Jide Attah and others. It captures the story of a dissatisfied community and a resilient woman who wanted change.
Women understand feminine challenges and only women can represent the right to save women., argues the Nigerian Women Trust Fund, a partner of the National Endowment for Democracy. Nigeria has 2% of the world’s population but 10% of global maternal deaths. Each day, 144 Nigerian women die in childbirth, which is equivalent to one death every 10 minutes. The group’s Create Her Space project aims “to get more women into the system to save our girls, sisters, mothers and women.”
