Summary Fearless examines the experiences of four women fighting for social justice. Each has her own fascinating story to tell, but all are united by their determination to stand up for what they believe. They are fighting for recognition of human rights in their countries - the Philippines, Bangladesh, India and Australia - and across the globe. The forces they are up against are imposing - religious fundamentalism, institutionalised discrimination, authoritarian control and economic exploitation - yet these courageous and committed women are prepared to risk everything. Above all, they refuse to be silent and accepting. They are passionate about the basic human right to speak one's mind without fear of repercussions and have willingly shouldered enormous responsibilities to give voice to those people who have none. This compelling series examines the issues that incite them to action, their personal motivations and their hopes for the future.
