Feminists Fight Back: The Woman’s Body as a Site of Political Struggle in Iran (Viome)

From Sharia law to women’s rights, how have women managed to fight back in the theocratic state of Iran? Who are these women? What are their stories? The documentary Women on the Front Line tries to answer these questions by talking to women’s rights activists who have been in the thick of the struggle for gender equality in Iran. Produced by Sheema Kalbasi and directed by Hossein Fazelli, Women on the Front Line is a beautifully filmed documentary that provides a spellbinding picture of oppression met with unwavering courage by Iran’s gender activists.
