How was the status of the woman in the past?
She was a commodity to be bought and sold, disrespected and dishonored. She was sold just like an animal or a piece of furniture; she was forced to get married or to commit adultery. She didn't inherit or own money; her husband takes over her money if she has some without her permission. Some ignorant cultures went even beyond that, in discussing whether she is a human being with a soul and spirit just as a man!
After all this, some societies accuse Islam of persecuting and oppressing women, dealing with her in an injustice way.
In this film, we are discussing all this, and the way Islam gave the woman all her rights and protected her.
