Six women, their dreams and a battle for emancipation through work. Zina, Cherifa, Halima, Fatima, Mina and Jamila live in the rural areas of Morocco and Tunisia, and are brought together by a common objective: to create farming cooperatives through which to couple their ancient knowledge with the development of new products for the market and recognition of their professional and gender identity. More than 35% of the female population lives in the rural areas of the Maghreb. Between 70 and 90% of agricultural labour is carried out by women.
