Feminism and Islam Discussion at LBI Library March 25

Mar 13, 2019

The Long Beach Island branch of the Ocean County Library in Surf City will host “Women, Feminism, and Islam” on Monday, March 25, at 6:30 p.m. Sylvia Chan-Malik, assistant professor in the departments of American and Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University, will help participants understand Islam and feminism, including the common notion of the oppression of Islamic women, the movement of Islamic feminism, and a general discussion of gender and women’s rights.

She will discuss the notion of the “poor Muslim woman” and that they do not acknowledge developments in feminism or political activism.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Island Library and the Jewish Community Center of LBI. It is also made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.
