Ain’t No Time For Women - A Hair Salon reflects Tunisia's political turmoil

In Tunis, in November 2019, on the eve of the presidential election, a group of women gathered at Saïda's hair salon. The salon becomes a microcosm of the nation's internal turmoil, reflecting the hopes, fears, and discussions of a country grappling with its teenage democracy.

This female sanctuary offers an intimate look at the nation's political landscape and the diverse voices shaping its future.
