Does anyone know what documentary that was?

I'm just about to embark on a research project which, in it's simplest sense, is about women at home and the social set-up/constructs which keep them there and yet also devalues that role.

I'm still in the early stages of mapping out the project and so I'd welcome any reccommendations for relevant articles/text books/documentaries/other sources. Especially of interest would be information relating to women in Spain, because that's where/who I'll be researching.

But - the point of this post was actually to find out if anyone could direct me to a documentary that I remember was relevant - but have forgotten the name/details of! I was linked to it from MN in the first place. It's by a promiment female femininst/politician from New Zealand (or was it Australia?) who talks about women being considered 'economically inactive' when working within the home - she cites not only women from her own country but women in developing nations etc.

Hope I can find it again! Thanks in advance.

Brillaint! Managed to find the documentary again after some searching around. It's "Who's Counting? Marilyn Waring on Sex, Lies and Global Economics" for anyone interested.
