Mona Mohammed ’16: “Independent study with Professor Isleem” – April 7, 2016

In the West, Arab women are often portrayed as voiceless and in need of rescue from more liberated Western women and men. Yet Arab women have engaged in feminist thinking and movement for many decades. In this presentation, Mohammed will give an overview of the history of feminist movements in the Arab world. By focusing on two different forms of feminism, National Pan Arab feminism and Islamic feminism, Mohamed will present some of the basic principles in Arab feminism and explain the contexts in which they arose. She will then share her own perspective and experience, as a Yemeni feminist.
