This lecture, delivered by one of the most Internationally recognized Islamic Feminists in the past few decades, will trace the Muslim Women's Movement from an inside personal-spiritual course to its global conditions and challenges and on towards a new paradigm changing the future.  Muslim women are creating more viable, necessary and creative reforms than any other sector of Islamic post-modernism.  The path has been rough, the challenges have been deep and yet, the rewards are unprecedented.  

 
This lecture will cover the rise of Islamic feminism and its direct relationship with both secular Muslim feminism and Political Islam.  It will feature analysis and experiences spanning 4 decades of scholarship and activism in more than 60 countries.  Islamic feminism is born out of this time and travel but it is still growing and its impact will continue the course towards an inevitable future of equality and justice for all.
