I (the director) has made a one year research on Muslim women’s issues in Indonesia and during the research, I met Nyai Masriyah Amva. I was very impressed with her strong spirit, her advocacy on gender issues and on promoting interfaith dialogues. So, I felt that her story should be shared not only with Malaysians or Muslims in other countries, but also with the rest of the world.
