A Stranger in Her Own City

I watched a short documentary film the other night called A Stranger in Her Own City directed by Khadija Al-Salami, which chronicles a day in the life of a Yemen girl who dares to defy her cultural norm by appearing in public without a veil or a male escort. I found a portion of the film on You Tube, and thought I would share. It is an amazing story. I had never really seen anything this up-close and personal concerning the Muslim Fundementalists before and found it quite educational.

The entire film is available for purchase at
