THE JIHAD TO REFORM: THE STRUGGLE TO DEFINE OUR FAITH


Confronting Patriarchy in Muslim Societies
Dr. Hina Azam
Sunday February 24, 2008
Cubberly Auditorium
Dr. Azam, a professor of Middle Eastern Studies at University of Texas-Austin, will address the challenges to equality and dignity that Muslim women face today in Muslim communities around the world. As we continue to witness the repression and oppression of women, specifically in Muslim societies, it is of the utmost importance to trace the religious, cultural, and historical roots of such oppression and challenge the attitudes and beliefs that give rise to such oppression. Dr. Azam will engage in such a discussion and hopefully provide a framework by which we can move forward, without giving in to the often- hegemonic and culturally imperialistic notions of Western feminism.
