Invitation to “Feminism in Islam” with Iman Bibars
Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018, 7:30 pm
Diplomatische Akademie Wien, 15A Favoritenstraße, 1040 Wien
Join Dr. Iman Bibars, an internationally renowned social entrepreneur and women’s rights activist, for a frank and insightful discussion on the role of feminism in Islam. As a Muslim woman well versed on the topic, Dr. Bibars maintains that the patriarchal oppression of women in the Muslim world is not that which is ordained by the authentic Islam. Rather, the decentralized nature of Islam has allowed for a multitude of interpretations and misinterpretations to flourish, some of which have been used to justify cultural and civic practices that oppress women.
“DiePresse” journalist Duygu Özkan will lead us through the evening.
