Throughout the Islamic world, growing numbers of women are demanding education and equal opportunities-a stance that sometimes places them in conflict with their societies. In this episode, we look at the experiences of Muslim women in Turkey, where the traditional headscarf has become a symbol of the country's struggle between the forces of secularism and religion. In Israel, activists are fighting to stop honor killings in the country's Muslim communities. And in Toronto, a developer has created an entire Muslim suburb in an effort to merge traditional Islam with contemporary Canadian society.
