Customer Reviews

Very compelling message, highly recommended.
Robyn M. Musicant
It is shameful that Muslim women are treated so horribly, and more people need to speak out against the brutality being perpetrated upon these women!
Cindy Crenshaw
This is what happens when so called good people ignore what is happening.

There's strong opposition to this film by CAIR here in the states and it should be noted that there is 100% accuracy in this film. If you run into someone putting it down, question why? The reality is this is the story of real women and the violence they live through in the Nation of Islams' War on Women. The opposition comes in the form of claiming there's racism (islam isn't a race, it's an ideology), bandying about the terms of islamophobes when the reality is an embracing of the ideology and a call for an end to violence to women. All in all, this film helps educate the western world into the realities of what is indeed happening behind closed doors within western cultures, overseas in the open and more.

While not all Muslims are misogynists, many Muslim-majority countries have appalling track records when it comes to women’s equality. Pretending that no Muslims commit violence against women wrapped in the "legitimacy" of their religion is intellectually dishonest and inaccurate. The problem will never be addressed if civilized people do not loudly and repeatedly condemn their brutal, disgusting and barbarous acts. Violence against women is evil and must be rooted out and punished even if the perpetrators claim its culturally or religiously sanctioned. I can't imagine that any decent person would disagree. Many Muslims are good people who fight for gender equality and their efforts should be applauded.

Every single woman in this documentary is educated, well spoken, and passionate. They come from all different backgrounds. I bought this knowing that Ayan Hirsi Ali was heavily involved- and I'm not surprised to see that she gathered a group of women who are every bit as intelligent and articulate as she is. Very compelling message, highly recommended. What an amazing cause...

Everyone needs to watch this documentary! Americans need to speak out against this abuse of women. I have a very clear view now that Iam not an Islamaphobe!

This movie touches upon a very worthy topic of gender slavery in the Islamic world, and all the guests are very eloquent speakers. I have read quite a few first-hand accounts of the escapees from this evil, and I feel the cause would be served better if more time was taken by the documentary evidence (of which there is plenty, unfortunately...), even if accompanied by the speakers' comments. Also, they almost never mentioned the silence of the so-called women's organizations about horrors of female life in Islamic world, including the UN departments on human trafficking and child molestation. Despite the fact that the 57 UN member-states are Muslim-majority countries, these 9 speakers could appeal to the rest of the world powers to defend the innocent. This gathering looked to me more like a 'women book club' meeting than the Women's Rights activists' meeting. I guess, to sum up, I am trying to say that the message does not come across strong enough, to make someone to do more research and become an advocate for the cause.

Had a hard time watching this as the horrors really upset me as I have a daughter and two granddaughters. This should be seen by every American. Shown in schools to make people aware of the horrors of sharia law. Brandies. Univ of Michigan should have shown this as it is well written and produced. To cow tow to CAIR is embarrassing. Again universities shutting down free speech. Shameful

I keep up, as best I can with world news. But these individual stories make the abuse and horror of honor killings and violence personal. The horror of the so called "religion of peace" is painfully evident. I will say that the women both Muslim and non Muslim are brave to speak out. If you follow the news too, then you know that they've already been denigrated and threatened for their stories. I would have like to hear more from the Iraqi christian lady and Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She is brilliant, I've read her book "Infidel" and it's also a look into a world of misogyny and hate from the Islam. This is a must see if you'd like to understand more. It will also give you an Idea of how you can help.

I hope everyone can(and everyone of all religions) see this documentary of women who are being murdered and destroyed by Muslims using Koranic justification. This is an horrific story of the suffering that women living in Islam around the world are enduring. Another recommendation is to order and view "The Stoning of Soraya M." An excellent look at the insane world in which Muslim women live.
