Egyptian Mothers – Happier With Boys

Egyptian mothers – Happier with boys

Although Daughters of the Nile premiered in 1982, the film hasn’t lost any of its current interest. It offers a unique insight into a segment of Egyptian society that has hardly changed over the years. The lives of women in Egypt can still be very limiting, with all aspects of their existence spelled out by tradition and the teachings of the Koran. With little voice in their education, or marriage, they must accept the unbending rules of their society. The Daughters of the Nile offers a unique account of their day-to-day living, married to men chosen by their fathers.
