Sisters of the Savannah
Natural scientists are challenging a century of patriarchal biases about the role of females in the mammal world. We used to think the wilderness was ruled by males — the lion “king of beasts,” the mighty bull elephant, and the large imposing baboon male. But this documentary journeys to the African savannahs to reveal a very different story. Follow the lives of fierce lion sisters, majestic elephant grandmothers, and regal baboon mothers who form sisterhoods to raise their families.
