As a final project for “Maidservants of Allah: Women and Gender in Islam,” International Peacemaking Program Fellow Emily Barger made a 15-minute film titled “Just a Woman.”
For the film, Emily interviewed four women who are students at Hartford Seminary. They are from Lebanon, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United States.
She asked them various questions, including:
- What are some stereotypes you face as a Muslim woman?
- What does the hijab mean to you?
- Would you describe yourself as a feminist?
