The role of women in Islam is changing, and this episode of Twist of Faith will look at how this role is evolving in different parts of the world. We’ll look at Israel, where there is a determined effort to stop the phenomena of honor killings; at Turkey, where the trend is the other way, towards conservatism, where women who wear the veil are demanding the right to go to university; and at Calgary, where traditional families are finding ways to intermingle in society, find top professions, and at the same time maintain a strict adherence to Islamic law.
