Women, Feminism, and Islam
(a presentation by Dr. Sylvia Chan-Malik, an Associate Professor in the Depts. of American and Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University)
Our speaker’s research focuses on the history of Islam in the United States, and more broadly, on the intersections of race, gender, and religion in American public life. Her recent book is “Being Muslim: A Cultural History of Women of Color and American Islam.” Come to this talk to dispel erroneous assumptions about whether women of Islam can be feminists.
