Laboring on Labor Day

I spent this morning, labor day, filming in Nairobi with the wonderful and inspirational Rebecca Lolosoli, pioneer founder of Umoja, the all women's Samburu village. It's apparently a sort of Amazonian women's power move, established as a retreat from the endemic abuse and wife-beating of traditional Samburu society. Male relatives are allowed to visit the village, briefly, but on the whole the Umojians are doing just fine without us men.
