SALLY FIELD PORTRAYS an American woman who is married to a man from Iran. He decides to take his family back to Iran for a vacation, but then decides to stay. She is outraged, but she has no recourse. She is shocked to discover there is nothing she can do. She is his wife, and Muslim law (which is strictly followed in Iran) says he has the right to tell her what to do, and if she wants to leave the country, she has to leave her child. Children are the property of the husband.
This is a true story. It puts you inside a country following Islamic law, allowing you to feel the horror a woman from a free country would feel to have so many rights taken away. For Islamic fundamentalists, part of the practice of their religion is to live in a country following Sharia (Islamic law). This includes an enforcement of the principle that wives and children are the property of the husband and father.
In the movie, we see through the eyes of an American woman, and we are as shocked as she is. It is hard to believe somewhere in the modern world women have so few rights.
Our focus on Citizen Warrior is what an individual citizen can do to help defeat Islamic supremacism. Find out what a citizen can do.
Watch the movie Not Without My Daughter to see why women's rights are so important and how it is in direct opposition to the goals of Islamic fundamentalists.
