Embedcode not available - visit Journeyman Pictures
In Bangladesh women suffer terrible discrimination.
The female writer and activist Taslima Nasreen has been one of the very few calling for more freedom for women. Now Islamic leaders have issued a Fatwa calling for her death, and offering a large reward to whoever kills her. There have been huge demonstrations, and the Bangladeshi authorities have issued a warrant for her arrest. This comprehensive feature includes interviews with Taslima, who is in hiding, and the Bangladeshi lady Premier Begum Zia. It also includes a colourful and beautifully filmed background look at the conditions suffered by women, with interviews and case studies.
