Event: 'MUSLIMA:MUSLIM WOMEN'S ART AND VOICES'Print
  Feminist
Date: Friday, March 08, 2013
Duration: All Day

MUSLIMA showcases the growing global movement of Muslim women who are asserting that male-dominated culture and politics – not Islam itself – have perpetuated the idea of women’s inferiority. As Nobel Prize winner Shirin Ebadi of Iran puts it in her interview: “The undemocratic regimes take advantage of religion to promote their own undemocractic ideologies.”  Ebadi and her counterparts around the world are seeking to change centuries of laws, customs, and perspectives that keep Muslim women from accessing justice and living independent lives.

Officially launching in celebration of International Women’s Day (March 8), MUSLIMA’s content is now available for free online and will expand as IMOW receives user-generated submissions.
