A filmmaker in Jordan is raising awareness about the lack of women's rights in the region by telling stories which address social problems.

Ghada Saba, who is known as a Gender Equality Champion, has produced several documentaries with Jordanian Queen Rania Al Abdullha, which focus on everyday heroes.

Ms Saba was in New York attending the annual session of the Commission on the Status of Women which continues until the end of the week.

Ana Carmo started by asking her how her work contributes to the empowerment of women.
