Inspired by 'Half The Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide' by the husband-and-wife team Nick Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, '▽' features a perspective of the opportunities that lie within the empowerment of women, examining the spectrum of attitudes held, and behaviours toward women from differing sexes and cultures.
The 4-part TV series laments the various forms of oppression women globally experience, from the cruel and often violent characteristic of some developing regions - including sex trafficking/forced prostitution, gender-based violence and maternal health - to a contemplation of the more implicit behaviours latent in Australian society. Blossoming from this moral challenge develops the transforming powers held within the empowerment and education of women.
