Feminism – is it Islamic and do we need it?

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

My Youtube talk on feminism and also specifically on Islamic feminism:

I explain why those holding conservative and traditional views about Islam feel threatened by feminism and therefore try to portray it negatively and criticise it.  I also explain how Islamic feminism is about bringing attention to God’s words and not changing them and therefore challenging patriarchal interpretations of Islam instead of continuing to be held hostage to them.
