When she was a young lawyer, Kholoud Al-Faqih walked into the office of Palestine’s Chief Justice and announced she wanted to join the bench. He laughed at her. But just a few years later Kholoud became the first woman judge to be appointed in the Middle East’s Shari’a (Islamic Law) courts.

The Judge offers a unique portrait of Judge Kholoud her brave journey as a lawyer, and her tireless fight for justice for women.
