MIM"An important film for our troubled times. Its narrative has a place in America's message of change and in the feminist movement that is gaining momentum in many predominantly Muslim countries." 
The Feminist Review
 
When former Wall Street Journal journalist and single mother Asra Q. Nomani returns from working in Pakistan to her hometown mosque in Morgantown, West Virginia, she believes she sees signs of trouble: exclusion of women, intolerance toward non-believers, and suspicion of the West. She begins a campaign to drag the mosque's practices into the 21st century, triggering a heated battle between tradition and modernity. Nomani's activist tactics alienate would-be allies in the mosque, leading many to wonder who most deserves the label of "extremist." This riveting Emmy® Award nominated film is not only about women's rights in the mosque but about the struggles of a Muslim community faces as it strives to be a part of American life.
