    We’ve all heard the horror stories from male-dominated cultures, like Saudi Arabia: forced marriages for young girls, female genital mutilation, “honor” killings. Now, for the first time on film, an international group of women’s-rights champions break the silence and reveal their efforts to fight against these injustices and for women’s rights everywhere.

  4. Audience Choice – BEST of the FEST Documentary – “Yemeniettes”

    Shawn Thompson / USA / 2013 / 1 hour q mins
    This uplifting documentary helps give us hope that young Muslim girls might just have a chance for a better future. Three Yemeni teenage girls enter a youth Middle Eastern entrepreneurial competition, with their innovative solar-panel powered devices, designed to compensate for the frequent electrical grid outages in their country.

    Luckily, their unusually open-minded parents “support” the girls’ ambitions, despite community pressure not to allow their daughters to pursue non-traditional female vocations. Along the way, the girls encounter the hardships of a country scarred by a broken educational system, joblessness, and a threatening Al-Qaeda presence.
