Women, Feminism, and Islam

March 13, 2018 at 3:30 PM | East Windsor, NJ | Springpoint at Meadows Lakes
How often do you hear the words “Islam” and “feminism” together? Perhaps a better question is – how often should you hear those two words together? Stereotypes and perspectives about Islam sometimes include the notion of the “Poor Muslim Woman” and do not acknowledge any developments in feminism or political activism. In this session, the common notion of the oppression of Islamic women and the movement of Islamic feminism as well as a general discussion of gender and women’s rights will help participants further their understanding of Islam and feminism.
