DW shared a two-minute video showing excerpts from the latest Ramadan TV shows where women are being abused by their husbands or parents, and explaining how these shows are helping normalize domestic abuse against women. My question is though: Most of these female actresses are more than capable of influencing the producers/directors and standing for their rights. Why do they accept such roles? And why don’t they condemn these scenes?

On a different note, how fake is that scene at Minute 0:24? And to think some people actually convinced me of watching Al Hayda (which I didn’t yet).
