Senegalese Women: A Challenge to Strife (English Version)

Senegalese Women: A Challenge to Strife (English Version)
36:51 | 2015

Categories: Documentary, Politics, African Movies, Foreign, Shorts

This inspiring documentary explores the great strides that Senegal has made to counter extremist Islamic movements, despite rampant terrorism in the neighboring countries of Mali, Nigeria and Libya. Much of this progress is attributable to the peaceful nature of Islam in Senegal, dominated as it is by the Suffi and Murid schools. But equally important are the powerful voices of women who oppose the violence—who also seek to elevate their status as full participants in the national economy. While they strive to rid themselves of discriminatory traditional restrictions, they are working hard to seek equality and prosperity. A French-language version of the film (with no subtitles) is also available.
