Senator Tom Harkin says she cannot be both.
Narrated by Meryl Streep, Stolen Childhoods is a documentary feature film about the growing plague of child labor that engulfs the lives of 246 million children today. In extraordinary footage of their working conditions, child slaves, bonded laborers and laboring poor children from eight countries (including the US) tell their own stories . . . children forced to pick pesticide-laden tobacco, coffee and vegetables, kids chained to looms, boys kidnapped to work on fishing platforms at sea, girls trafficked for prostitution, children scavenging at dumps and enslaved at rock quarries and brick kilns. All these children tell their stories in their own words.Stolen Childhoods features interviews with 2004 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Wangari Maathai, human rights activist, Kailash Satyarthi, and Senator Tom Harkin, who calls the world's child laborers, "a breeding ground for Osama Bin Laden's army and future terrorists."At a time of increasing global insecurity, Stolen Childhoods reveals the risks of the world community continuing to waste these children's lives. It portrays local, national and international solutions at work to end child labor, offering a humanitarian path to a more stable world. It gives voice to children still lost to work and it celebrates the resilience of kids whose lives have been saved. It is a shocking, hopeful and energizing film and a call to action.
