directed by Froukje Bos
Format
Video; VHS
Summary
An interview with Soraya Altorki, originally from Saudi Arabia, who is now a professor of anthropology at the American University in Cairo. In this candid portrait, she and her educated women colleagues express their fears that the fundamentalist movement will take away their hard-won achievements. Yet, they also resent the lack of understanding of their culture among Westerners and the tendency to regard Muslim women as all the same, without regard to class or education.
