The Ascent of Woman

Post by Idéfix on Thu Jul 13, 2017 12:30 pm

Great documentary series on Netflix. The title is a play on the title of Darwin's famous book, and it covers the ups and downs of women's rights throughout history, and the contributions women made to history. There are several interesting stories in there about great women leaders. I particularly liked the first episode's treatment of the earliest written records of the Fertile Crescent.

Unfortunately the series features only one Indian woman.

I was actually thinking of Chanda Kochhar. Nooyi is American.

Her husband was an opium addict and an alcoholic. She was his 20th wife.

Yes.
Roshanara could also be included. There were juicy stories about her.

Max: Nurjahan had a tough life with her ex-husband and I bet, she had a miserable life with Jahangir (the guy was an ars-hole and a drug addict).
