This essential documentary film focuses on the strong, peaceful, determined Iranian women and their decentralized but surprisingly powerful movement. This movement is the largest, non-violent rights movement in the world, yet it survives within the heart of a bitterly anti-female theocratic state. This movement is as groundbreaking and historically significant as the American, Polish, and South African civil rights movements. It has the potential to change the social and political landscape of more than just Iran. The story of these women and their movement, their fears, their disappointments, and their brilliant successes simply must be told throughout the global community, as it is a model for humanity’s best hopes in troubled times.Women on the Front Line has set itself the goal of just doing that! From these scholars and activists we will learn the origins of this movement, its sources of strength, and the repressive and humiliating gender laws and how they were particularly infuriating to educated women.
