Huda al-Habash in Veiled Voices

  • Huda al-Habash in “Veiled Voices”

A Lebanese TV personality fights to maintain public credibility after her divorce. An Egyptian religious leader campaigns for recognition from an Islamic authority. A Syrian professor endeavors to reform notions of Islamic marriage. Through portraits of these three women public figures, filmmaker Brigid Maher offers Western viewers a more nuanced view of women’s roles in Middle Eastern societies.

Maher’s documentary Veiled Voices premieres Sunday 9/13 at 7 PM on satellite network Link TV.
