Islamic Feminism and the Quest for Gender Equality

April 22 |12-1 pm | WCC 3016

This final workshop in our Gender, Law, and Society Series will explore Islamic feminism and the contributions of feminist scholars and activists challenging patriarchy and male domination in the Muslim legal traditions. Sarah Marsso and Jana Rumminger (Musawah Knowledge-Building Group) discuss the pioneering work of Musawah — a global movement that brings together different NGOs, Islamic scholars, and feminist activists advocating for justice and equality in the Muslim family – and discuss the frontiers and challenges of the contemporary Islamic feminist discourse and activist work pushing for equality and gender justice. The discussion will be moderated by Salma Waheedi.

Non-pizza lunch will be provided.
