As a one-woman crew Ariel attended the UN Conference for Women on the Environment and World Women's Congress for a Healthy Planet in Miami, FL in November 1991. She shot ten hours of footage. Much of it was aired on her public access show CULTURAL ECOLOGY/DEMOCRACY. This was the one edit she did on the material. Vandana Shiva, Wangari Maathai and Peggy Antrobus are the known stars. But the real stars are all the women who attended to make better policy -- none of which would be adopted in Rio.
