Islamic feminism: entry point for renewal of Islamic discourse

May 9, 2015

I think that Islamic feminism is actually going to be the entry point for this whole renewal of Islamic discourse…. So it will be up to the Muslim women themselves who are not willing to let go of their religion, but at the same time, they are not willing to accept being treated as second class citizens because of a certain version of religion.

Listen to Ms. Sharafeldin and others speak on “Understanding Islamic Feminism.”
