Can women prosper in Islam?

In United Kingdomby

06Feb2018

From 6.00 pm until 8.00 pm

CLM 6.02, LSE

LSESU Islamic Society and LSE Discover Islam Week 2018

Oppressed, inferior, and unequal – for many people, these are the first words that come to mind when thinking about women in Islam. These stereotypes confuse Islam with cultural practices and fail to recognise that Islam has empowered women with the most progressive rights since the 7th century. In Islam, women are not inferior to men. This talk will present the actual teachings of Islam regarding the rights, roles, and responsibilities of women in an intellectually stimulating way - there will also be a Q&A session at the end!

This talk will be led by Zara Faris who graduated in Arabic & Islamic Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). She is now a researcher, writer, and international speaker for the Muslim Debate Initiative (MDI).
