The documentary Women Sense Tour started is a personal project by Sarah Zouak, a young French-Moroccan feminist activist who wished to eliminate stereotypes and reshape perceptions of Muslim women around the world. During 5 months, with fellow director Justine Devillaine, she travelled through Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Iran, and Indonesia to meet 25 women, all agents of change in their own countries for the empowerment of women and girls.
The documentary screening will show the Indonesian chapter of this movie which potrays five Indonesian women and their inspirational initiatives to go beyond discrimination and stigmatization on the grounds of religion and gender. The film screening and ensuing discussion aim to engage with the audience on issues that affect the lives of women and girls.
The two film directors will be joined by Lita Anggraini, founder of Jala PRT (National Network for Advocacy for Domestic Workers); Nadya Saib, founder of Wangsa Jelita (Social business that offers beauty and body treatment products), and Velove Vexia, actress and writer; and they will share their perspective on gender equality, their personal stories of addressing today’s challenges, including in ending violence against women and how they empower themselves and others.
