We invite you to a conversation with Dr. Ziba Mir-Hosseini on the fight for women's equality and Islam.

This is the first public event of our new "Rights and Religions" Program, which is focused on studies and ongoing discussions on the impact of religions on the fight for human rights and social justice in different parts of the world. At a time when political, economic, and social systems are breaking down, inequality, injustice and repression are on the rise, and social justice advocates are increasingly and necessarily grappling with the power of religion for good and bad, we believe an effort to look critically at the role of religion in social movements is urgently needed.
