Sufism in Senegal Yaye Fall - Women's Voices

Sufismus im Senegal Yaye Fall - Die Stimmen der Frauen

The Baye Fall are the most conspicuous adherents of the Senegalese Sufi order of the Mouride Brotherhood. With their hip-length dreadlocks, black and white robes and countless prayer beads, most of the time they are the focus of public interest. The order is described as a Muslim brotherhood, yet as many women belong to the order and play a role that is on a par with that of the men.
They are known as Yaye Fall. «Yaye Fall - Women's Voices» is devoted to the outlook, attitude to life and activities of the Yaye Fall in view of the general situation of women in this predominantly Islamic country. It seeks to shed light on the all too often neglected, even disregarded significance of women in Islamic movements.
