Living Courageously: The Spirit of Women

Living Courageously: The Spirit of Women celebrates the courage of women in times of crisis. The half-hour documentary, which also features insights from actress and advocate Jane Seymour, profiles three American women whose lives have been transformed by challenging — even devastating — circumstances. Alison Levine overcame a life-threatening heart condition to become an international mountain climber, lead the first U.S. women’s Everest expedition and head a foundation that helps Ugandan women find work as mountain guides. Once involved with drugs and alcohol, Francine Ward's near-fatal car accident transformed her; she earned her law degree and now coaches women on self-esteem issues and works with teenagers struggling with addiction. Photographer Sheila Hagler — the first member of her family to graduate from college — now works with at-risk teens in a rural Alabama community devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
