        Benazir Bhutto: First Woman Leader of a Muslim Nation | Bhutto Film Module

        This module traces the rise of Benazir Bhutto to power as a young woman. Students will learn about the status of women in Pakistan, the influences of Islam and the military on Pakistani politics, the leadership of her father, and her personal family life. The module raises the question: was Benazir Bhutto a feminist, or was she a pragmatist when it came to reconciling her position on women's rights with conservative Islamic elements in power in Pakistan?
