    The importance of a woman getting the highest political post in the land is not in its being a 'first', but that Gillard is her own woman. She has not turned into an 'honorary bloke'. Gillard's singular attribute is her sincerity and the genuineness of her public conversations. And she can laugh.

    The trial and execution of Soraya M are portrayed in agonising, visceral detail. The stoning of 'adulterous' women under the auspices of Shariah law is shown to be less about violence inherent to Islam than the egos of brutal and bullying men.
