Abstract This article examines the role female documentary filmmakers have played as "change agents" who have provided significant advocacy for social, cultural, political and legal change. They have created global opportunities for women's voices and experiences to be witnessed and heard. Documentary production is a site of media empowerment for women because the form promotes knowledge that supports gender equality and equity in both local and global contexts. Documentary productions are both a site of struggle and of women's media activism.
