Changing Tides: Sisterhood by the Sea
Directed by Leah Dawson. 2018. USA. 21 min.
On a small island in Bocas Del Toro, Panama, opportunities for young women are faint. Sports, activities, and education are often dominated by male participation, and teenage girls are expected to follow the local norm of getting pregnant or staying at home as caretakers. The Changing Tides Foundation teamed up with Give & Surf to create a program called WOMP (Women's Outreach Mentorship Program). WOMP donates gear and for one week, teaches stand-up paddling, snorkeling, and surfing in attempts to change the status quo for the young girls of Boas Del Toro.
