Stripping away sound bites to reveal how civil liberties affect real people every day.

The ACLU Freedom Files features real clients and the attorneys who represent them, along with well-known actors, comedians and activists. By combining real stories and dynamic storytelling, this 10-part series creates a powerful emotional effect that will motivate viewers to action. Other episodes explore such topics as the Patriot Act, the Supreme Court, Racial Profiling and Dissent.

Women's Rights

Women have made great gains in the fight for equality, but gender bias still creates barriers for many - especially for immigrants, women with low incomes, victims of domestic violence, and women seeking reproductive health services.

In "Women Rights," immigrant retail workers describe how they stood up to their abusive boss, who paid them less than minimum wage and sexually harassed them. They fought for their rightful compensation, blazing a trail for other immigrant women.

A young athlete shows how she helped level the playing field in her town - literally - by insisting that girls' sports facilities get the attention they deserve.

You'll hear about women whose health was endangered because Medicaid wouldn't cover their abortions, and learn about efforts to ensure that reproductive rights are respected.

The program also includes the powerful story of a woman who made it her life's mission to get restraining orders in domestic violence cases enforced, after her husband murdered their daughters while the police ignored her pleas. She took her case to the Supreme Court with the ACLU's help.

This episode of The ACLU Freedom Files features these stories and others, told by the courageous individuals behind the headlines.
