Description

In the aftermath of the Arab Spring, Tunisia was left with the task of rebuilding a government in a deeply divided nation. The ousting of the authoritarian regime was the easy part. Two women, a journalist and an Islamist politician, publicly envision two different dreams for the shape of democracy in their nation. They may disagree on issues of free speech and religion in politics, but they find common ground as outspoken women in an urgency of moving swiftly in the critical post-revolution years, lest extremists seize power.  -Chris Metzler
