Summary:
Everyone was surprised at the triumph of Hamas in the last Palestinian elections, but the bigger surprise was that the women were behind that victory. We follow three Hamas women to try and understand why an Islamist political party, operating in a very conservative society, allows its women to become political, social and even military leaders.
