        Diverse Turkish Women | Wide Angle

        Although it officially became a secular state in 1928, Turkey has never fully abandoned its Islamic roots, out of which have sprung a religious resurgence that has made its way to the highest levels of government. Both Islamic and secular traditions currently coexist, but the roles of women within each tradition are on diverging paths. In this video segment from the Wide Angle film "Turkey's Tigers," meet two Muslim women, one from a conservative and the other from a secular background, and learn about their lives in a secular Muslim nation.
