Women in the Stadium was originally produced for the Aljazeera documentary channel. It tells the stories of four members of the Palestinian Women�s National Football Team as they navigate the physical and societal obstacles placed in the way of success. While following the trials and tribulations of the team as it works its way to and from a series of local and international matches, Qaoud�s film also shows how several of these young sportswomen have emerged as important role models and a source of inspirations for young women and girls, many of whom have suffered from hardship.
