Frisline, organizer and former factory laborer, now in her second camp after the January 2010 Haitian earthquake.

Told through compelling lives of five courageous Haitian women workers, [the 2009 documentary] Poto Mitan gives the global economy a human face. Each woman’s personal story explains neoliberal globalization, how it is gendered, and how it impacts Haiti: inhumane working/living conditions, violence, poverty, lack of education, and poor health care. While Poto Mitan offers in-depth understanding of Haiti, its focus on women’s subjugation, worker exploitation…and resistance demonstrates these are global struggles.
