Event description

Description

The Center for Ethics and Leadership invites current students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and guests to hear Rita Stephan speak of Women in the Muslim World.

The talk highlights women’s struggle for political and social change in the Arab World. Being situated at the center of the secular-Islamist conflict in the new order of the Arab states, women are now facing the enormous challenge of inclusivity, underrepresentation, un-representation, and deprivation of rights. However diverse their geographies and societies might have been, women’s participation in the Arab Spring has elevated their ability to influence the decision-making process and developed their agency to respond to existing and new challenges. Using their social structure and new social networks tools, they have transformed their ability to make their voices heard, claiming their presence in the public and political spaces, and are now refusing to go back to silence.
