Women, Rights, and Activism in the Muslim World

Harvard Law School’s Islamic Legal Studies Program: Law and Social Change, with support from the Harvard Human Rights Program, is pleased to announce its first film series, “Women, Rights, and Activism in the Muslim World.” Throughout the Spring semester, we will showcase 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 will be followed by a discussion led by a guest who is either the filmmaker or an expert in the relevant theme. All screenings will start at 5:00 pm. Dinner will be provided for attendees.
