Join us as we configure ideas, context and fiqh to create a deep understanding of Women as part of, and within, Islam. Our discussion will be led by Hanaa Hasan, a highly knowledgeable researcher and teacher, as we establish foundations from which we can begin dismantling the discourse around Muslim women. From power and politics, to addressing controversies surrounding the Hijab and modern feminist movement, the Islam and Women series is here to take your un-tackled thoughts, and develop them into powerful ideas.
This session is open to all, female and male, those who are well-versed in Islamic and political discourse to those who are just beginning to confront it. Your intellectual and spiritual development is our priority so bring along your own ideas, experiences and questions.
