Feminism Inshallah: A History Of Arab Feminism
A film by Feriel Ben Mahmoud
France, 2014, 52 minutes, Color, DVD, Arabic, French, Subtitled
Order No. W151152

The struggle for Muslim womenís emancipation is often portrayed stereotypically as a showdown between Western and Islamic values, but Arab feminism has existed for more than a century. This groundbreaking documentary recounts Arab feminismís largely unknown story, from its taboo-shattering birth in Egypt by feminist pioneers up through viral Internet campaigns by todayís tech-savvy young activists during the Arab Spring. Moving from Tunisia to Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, filmmaker and author Feriel Ben Mahmoud tracks the progress of Arab women in their long march to assert their full rights and achieve empowerment. Featuring previously unreleased archival footage and exclusive multigenerational interviews, FEMINISM INSHALLAH is an indispensable resource for Womenís Studies, Global Feminism, Middle East and Islamic Studies.
