Description

This documentary examines the struggle of women in countries experiencing the so-called 'Arab Spring'. Through interviews with women human rights defenders from the Middle East and beyond, this film reveals how women are continuing to fight for the right to be part of their countries' evolving political systems. By examining the consequences of inequality, the film underscores the connection between the fate of democracy in the Middle East-North African region and the future of global security in the post-9/11 era.
