Three courageous women in post-2011 Egypt fight for the original goals of the Arab Spring:“Bread, Freedom, and Social Justice” for all. The battles they wage each day reflect the uncertain crossroads at which the country and its women find themselves. A formerly veiled widow provides guidance for revolutionaries 40 years her junior. A young women’s rights activist demands an end to sexual harassment. A human rights defender from a rural military family is arrested and tortured, setting off a personal quest for justice that mirrors the trajectory of Egypt’s uprisings. (76 min.)
Sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Oregon.
