Women across the Arab world are redefining their role as leaders in Islam. VEILED VOICES investigates the world of Muslim women religious leaders through the eyes of these three women in Lebanon, Syria, and Egypt. Shot over the course of two years, VEILED VOICES reveals a world rarely documented, exploring both the public and private lives of these women. The stories featured in the film give insight into how Muslim women are now increasingly willing to challenge the status quo from within their religion, promoting Islam as a powerful force for positive transformation in the world. Each triumphs over difficult challenges as they carve out a space to lead - both in Islam and in their communities. VEILED VOICES profiles three influential women - along with their families and the communities they serve: Ghina Hammoud in Lebanon; Dr. Su'ad Saleh in Egypt; and Huda al-Habash in Syria.
