“Heroic Bodies” explores the various forms of the Sudanese Women’s struggle and resistance to take back their God-given rights to their bodies as well as establish their rights of existence in their societies and communities. Through utilizing body politics techniques in political resistance, through demonstrations, civil disobedience, and hunger strikes, they expose themselves to imprisonment and torture. Their revolution is reflected in their pursuit of the right to Education, enrolment in scientific training, in Public Health and Midwifery, breaking the social norms by becoming artists and Entertainers, as well as embracing a Matriarchal Religion of women worship like “Zar”, where women are allowed to let their bodies run wild.
