Summary
While many Arab widows lead a cloistered and restricted life, often living below the poverty line, in 2003, eight widows in the Galilean village of Tamra started a daring business venture - the Azka Pickle Cooperative - seeking financial independence for themselves and their children. This PBS Wide Angle report follows the women as they establish a tiny pickle factory and market their product to local stores. With little formal education or work experience, the women face numerous hurdles in their effort to expand the business into stores throughout Israel - while their personal lives reflect what is at stake for them financially, emotionally, and in the context of their culture. In addition, anchor Bill Moyers discusses global development and the Arab world with Azza Karam, Coordinator for the U.N. Arab Human Development Report
