“No Woman, No Cry” Film Debut on OWN
Air Date: 7 May 2011

In her gripping directorial debut, Christy Turlington Burns shares the powerful stories of at-risk pregnant women in four parts of the world, including a remote Maasai tribe in Tanzania, a slum of Bangladesh, a post-abortion care ward in Guatemala, and a prenatal clinic in the United States.

"No Woman, No Cry" will debut on Oprah’s new network on 7 May 2011 — just in time for Mother's Day in North America. PLUS In support of the film and the Every Mother Counts campaign, Starbucks has produced a companion CD of music inspired by the theme of motherhood.

A number of PMNCH partners have been promoting this film in advance of
its air date and helping Mrs Turlington Burns garner support for her Every
Mother Counts initiative. Women Deliver, The White Ribbon Alliance, CARE, Save
the Children and others have also partnered with Every Mother Counts for a
special “Count Me In” Mother’s Day campaign.
