Please join us for a screening of “Private Revolutions: Young, Female, Egyptian”, a documentary that chronicles over two years the lives of four young Egyptian women from various social backgrounds who are fighting for their rights and for change after the revolution.

 

The screening is the fourth in a film series presented by Islamic Legal Studies: Law and Social Change about women, rights, and activism in the Muslim world. HRP is co-sponsoring the series, which showcases films that highlight women’s struggles, conflicts, and triumphs across the region. The films cover a broad range of themes, including political and social activism, marriage, divorce, education, and sports.

Each screening is followed by a discussion led by a guest who is either the filmmaker or an expert in the relevant theme.
