I remember a few years ago I watched an Iranian film called “The Stoning of Soraya M”, a very exceptional film that presents the experience of an Iranian woman raped and persecuted and especially dominated by the authority of the man. The film throws light on a woman called Sorya who is a courageous Iranian woman, realizes very quickly that her arranged marriage is a failure and that she is wasting her life. Her husband then decides to organize a conspiracy and accuses her of adultery, thus dedicating her to an incredible punishment of cruelty stoning.
Through this film, I began to follow everything that concerns women’s rights and gender issues, and gender equality and also monitor the current situation of women in the Arab world
