Description

Defiantly eschewing Western portraits of Muslim women, Deepa Dhanraj (Something Like a War) explores the first women’s jamaat—traditionally a male institution—in South India, where women are raising their voices and enacting new interpretations of Sharia law to demand gender equality. (85 mins)
