Economic Revolution of Tunisian Women

“Tunisia is unique among the Arabic world, in terms of its advanced legislation on women’s rights. Tunisian women gained basic rights of gender equality earlier than most of their European counterparts, starting in 1956, when Tunisia gained independence. However, these rights were primarily enjoyed by wealthier and more educated women; lower income, less educated women did not have the same access to rights. With the Jasmine Revolution, the dictatorship in Tunisia ended, bringing a democratic system to the country; the effects of this change have been mixed for Tunisian women. This documentary explores the constantly transforming role of women in Tunisian society.”
