Canadians need to know about our women who have made remarkable achievements in their fields of study. This film is about Anne Innes Dagg's original work in the study of giraffes and the subsequent dismissal of her work by a tenure committee at a Canadian university. My heart broke watching the effect the dismissal had on her. The ending is uplifting.

Don't get me wrong, 95% of this documentary is very good. Why don't they put a warning on it though? It is rated G from what I can see on google. I am a vegan and was eating dinner when I was watching it. There is about 3 minutes showing graphic scenes of people skinning a dead giraffe and hacking away at its neck etc. Then there is a lot of detail images of different parts of the cut up body.
