“Rouane Itani’s short documentary, Madame Parliamentarian gives us some excellent insights into the Lebanese political system especially as it concerns the status of women in politics.”
Professor Joan Katen, Peace and Justice Studies, Pace University
“Rouane Itani’s Madame Parliamentarian is a must for anyone interested in women’s issues in the Middle East and in Lebanon in particular. Beautifully shot and edited, Itani packs a lot into her short documentary. I now have a good understanding that Lebanon, despite its reputation as one of the most progressive countries in the Arab world with a thriving democratic culture, has yet to embrace women in political life. Itani helps us understand that the reasons include women’s apathy, religious sectarianism, a patriarchal social structure, and women’s limited access to funding. A possible solution is a controversial quota for women, a program which is not uncommon in other mid-Eastern countries. Madame Parliamentarian deserves a home on the shelves of many universities.”
