(p.186) Conclusion
Muslim Women in French Cinema

Leslie Kealhofer-Kemp

Liverpool University Press

This book challenges the notion that first-generation Maghrebi migrant women, as a group, constitute a uniformly silent generation and are victims because of their status as immigrants, Muslim women, or women in a traditionally patriarchal culture. The cinematic representations of first-generation women are diverse, and while some of the films examined in the study do not necessarily invite viewers to identify with the first-generation women portrayed in them, the majority of them do promote an appreciation of the experiences and hardships lived by this generation of women. The book concludes with a discussion of feature films depicting Maghrebi women protagonists that are in production at the time of writing (directed by Hafsia Herzi and Fejria Deliba, respectively). These films suggest that first-generation women from the Maghreb in France continue to serve as inspiration for filmmakers in France.

Keywords:   Maghrebi migrant women, Challenging stereotypes, Immigration in France, Hafsia Herzi, Fejria Deliba
