By returning to the roots of Islam and understanding how societies have found justification for their treatment of women within Islamic sources, this thoughtful and far reaching film is an essential resource that debunks myths about women and Islam. Renowned Muslim feminist scholars and journalists, including Asra Q. Nomani, Mona Eltahawy, Azadeh Moaveni, Dr. Amina Wadud, Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl and Asma Gull Hasan, detail how from early on very different understandings of the Qur'an lead to vastly different translations, with enormous repercussions for women living in different Islamic societies around the world. RIGHTS & WRONGS is indispensable for courses on Islamic and Middle Eastern studies, comparative religion, women's studies and more.
