Because Our Cause is Just is an eye-opening documentary about the struggle of women in countries experiencing the so-called “Arab Spring.” Begun as a civil movement of women and men seeking human rights and justice after decades of dictatorship, the revolutionary wave has not yielded justice for all. Instead, the political openings caused by these revolts have been exploited by Islamist groups who seek to not only exclude women from the political process but to remove them from public life through intimidation, oppressive legislation, and even physical violence. Through powerful interviews and on-the-ground footage, the film reveals how women in the Middle East-North Africa region are continuing to fight for the right to be part of their countries evolving political systems. The film is available in English, Arabic, and French.
