Free Public Webinar – Islamic Feminism vs. Muslim Feminists

Islamic Feminism vs. Muslim Feminists

Ali al-Hakim

Friday, 28th April – 2:30 p.m. London Time.

In many articles and writings one may observe ‘Islamic Feminism’ as if it were identical and manifested in Muslim feminists. The main discussion of those misleading literature focuses on feminists’ ideas and criticisms of the practices, cultures and traditions of Muslims, as though Islam and Muslims were one and the same thing, whilst between them is a gap so cavernous as the one between Al-Farabi’s ‘The Noble Society’ and the corrupt Muslim regimes. To be more precise, one has to distinguish between Muslim feminists and what is eventually called by Dr. Lois Lamya’ aI-Faruq’i ‘The Islamic Feminism’. In this webinar, our intention is to highlight the distinctive features of the Muslim feminists, compared with the Islamic Feminism.
