Oppressed? (AIF event 2 | SUMSA)
13 October, 2016

Location: Eastern Avenue Lecture Theatre (Above the Auditorium)
Date and Time: Thursday 13th October 6-8:15pm
Join us for the second event of our Anti-Islamophobia Forum this Thursday!
We will be looking at the persistent myth throughout Western society that surrounds the image of the Muslim woman – an image of a dishevelled and oppressed being who needs to be saved, whether she recognizes her own destitute condition or not. This event will start by looking at the impact of great Muslim women throughout history as well as seek to alleviate modern misconceptions surrounding the figure of the Muslim women. All throughout the event, we will discuss the perceived difficulties that Muslim women face whilst highlighting the actual challenges that they have to cope with from both the Muslim community and wider society and finally discuss how we can overcome such problems.
Listen to our special line up of sisters speaking on the reality oppression of Muslim women. We hope to see you there!
