The victories of hundreds of Kenyan and Ethiopian female athletes are transforming the socio-economic landscape in two traditionally macho countries, one stride at a time. On this marathon to gender equality, roles are being reversed - men take care of the house and women earn the income. 01:05:12. The Longest Race documentary is the last piece of the Marathon to Gender Equality project. Hairdresser Nancy Chepkoge, super champion Florence Kiplagat, teacher Nelly Ruto, role-model and former champion Lornah Kiplagat, brilliant Sylvia Kibet, hardworking Caroline Chepkwony and veteran Agnes Kiprop are the leading Kenyan roles in this film. From the Ethiopian side, the first black African woman to win an Olympic Gold medal, Derartu Tulu, the tireless Aberu Kebede and Feyse Tadese, who is as shy as she is a true professional.
