Women Up in Arms
- 1965 ----- b & w ----- 27 min ----- 16mm
Three generations of Tunisian women discuss the changes in the roles of women over the past twenty years. Changes in Tunisian law in 1956, 1957 and 1964 guaranteed women the right to vote, the right to sue, the right to hold public office and to abolish the marriage customs that were against the natural dignities of women. Shows the reluctance of the women of one family to claim their new rights and how the husband forced the wife to "give up the veil."
