Imaging Muslim Women in Indonesian Ramadan Soap Operas
New. While the majority of Indonesia's TV programming is fairly secular, during the holy month of Ramadan, it undergoes a complete transformation becoming predominantly Islamic. The most popular aspect of this change of programming is a range of religious soap operas, screened at peak times, often with religious women as their central characters.
