Nice documentary showing afghanistans sufferation
Kristen Benevides | ct usa | 03/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"anyone should view this who is interested in the current political situation in afghanistan as well as the sufferation there, particularly of women. there is a book that goes along the same lines as this dvd by sally armstrong. she is a canadian who became interested and began advocating for the womens rights in afghanistan, and she has captured very well the situation as it really is. even in the removal of the taliban and the so-called liberation of women due to this, many people are still suffering, the burka is still being worn out of fear and tauting from men who disagree with any outside forces initiating changes in the country. follow the heartbreaking stories of women in afghanistan through the various personal stories that armstrong has covered in this documentary, and see for yourself the magnitude of the situation and the courage and strength of the woman to survive. the struggle continues on, and hopefully one day the people of afghanistan can find a peace and freedom they havent had."

"Canadian journalist Sally Armstrong guides us on a journey following four women and one girl as they pursue their dreams of liberation. Meet the remarkable Dr. Sima Samar, a woman who defied the Taliban's brutal edicts and became briefly Deputy Prime Minister in the new government.

CAC's Comments: This film clearly shows how women are treated in the Afghanistan and in the Middle East as a whole. By watching this film, the viewer will learn about Dr. Sima Samar who is a very strong, brave and courageous woman. With constant assassination attempts aimed at her, she manages to fight for the women of Afghanistan and prevails by making headway one step at a time.
