在青春期的边缘，Wadjda发现，在家庭和伊斯兰教都尊重的习俗概念背后，所有女性都受到了严格的限制。这样的发现以及包容和反抗的混合激发了这个被描述为聪明和固执的女孩(Suner 2006)。这是这部被精确观察到的电影的主要主题，同时也具有欺骗性的温柔。据报道，这部电影是由沙特女性海法亚·曼苏尔(Haifaa al-Mansour)执导的第一部故事片。Wadjda对任何与国家或清真寺有关的公开批评都持谨慎态度。相反，女演员的真实生活是在电影中呈现的。与此同时，她把注意力放在了她的老师、同学和母亲的生活上，具有毁灭性的效力和坚定的权威。
This focus of this section will be on exploring the ways in which relationships among women shape the female characters lives within the two films chosen for the discussion on Gender. In this section, two movies will be discussed with the central focus on the issues related to gender, and the movies selected are Wadjda and Caramel. It is evident through looking at the feet of the character that Wadjda is perceived as a rebel (Stockdale 2015). The other students within the movie at Saudi Arabian madrassa accessorize their gray dresses that are long and shapeless along with their black Mary Janes socks. However, Wadjda is a ten year old with natural smile and big eyes favoring to the high top shoes from Converse. It is considered to be a minor gesture of individual that is spirited within the world organized for suppression of expressions such as these. It is clear through the analysis that her determination to own a bicycle is something that is recognized as not forbidden but not allowed as well, as it is highly discouraged in the society of Saudi.
At the adolescence edge, Wadjda discovers the scrutinizing limitations that are placed upon all the women behind the concept of customs that are honored by both family and Islam. Such a discovery and the mix of accommodation and resistance provokes within this girl who is depicted to be smart and stubborn (Suner 2006). This is the primary subject of the concisely observed movie that is also deceptively gentle. It is reported that this movie is the initial feature that is directed by a Saudi woman, Haifaa al-Mansour. Wadjda is cautious in regards to placing forth any state or mosque related overt criticism. Instead, the factual life of the actress is presented within the movie. Along with which, the focus is placed on the lives of her teachers, classmates and mother with devastating effectiveness and assertive authority.
