Against the Grain

Against the Grain
Against the Grain is an exploration of women in the Middle East who have broken through traditional gender roles to accomplish amazing feats in the arts, business, politics and sports.

This story is an exploration of a small group of women who managed to go well beyond their society's expectations. How did they do it? Who or what was the driving force? What challenges did they face along the way? And what makes them different than other women in their culture?

Nashwa Taher is a real estate mogul in Saudi Arabia, a country where women must be covered, from head to toe, in public and are not allowed to drive. Gouda Shouaa from Syria is the only person in her country, of either gender, to hold an Olympic Gold Medal. Fatima Al Balooshi is the only female government Minister in Bahrain.

These are just a few of the women we will get to know as we try to discover the surprising common denominator behind their success: men.
