Women of the Holy Kingdom: Struggling for Equality in Saudi Arabia (Enhanced DVD)
As the world of Islam is one that is very conservative, society treats women different than men. This documentary explores the dignity felt by Saudi Arabia women as they fulfill the role they were meant to fulfill in their society. Their rights when it comes to politics and the freedom to hold down a job are vastly different from the rights of women throughout the rest of the world. Female residents of Saudi Arabia who work in the country as nurses, teachers and factory workers talk about their experiences in the work place and how their expectations vary greatly compared to women in other countries. Viewers will notice that due to the conservative nature of the society the women interviewed for the documentary are not even permitted to show their full faces.
