Title Polygamy on the Air: Reactions to the Egyptian TV Serial Al-hajj Mutwalli
Author(s) Roald, Anne Sofie
Date 2003
English abstract
In the Scandinavian countries, most immigrants have satellite dishes or they live in segregated areas where the cable company provides TV-channels from the tenants’ homelands. This study discusses a TV-serial aired on various Arabic-language TV-channels during Ramadan 2001. The TV-serial deals with polygyny and it stirred emotions in many of the Muslim countries as well as in Arab communities in the western world. On the basis of an investigation in the Scandinavian countries, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, various views on the serial are presented, with emphasis on differences in viewpoints between men and women.
