This documentary film features the graduation ceremony of an imam academy in Rabat, the capital of Morocco.

These women will serve as imams across the country in mosques, schools, hospitals, and prisons. The film includes additional resources including an essay about women's rights in Morocco, an interview with the US ambassador to Morocco, a photo essay, and a timeline of prominent women in Muslim history.
