Arthur Jeffery Centre Perspective Series Lecture
Women & Islam: seclusion & exclusion?
WEDNESDAY 21 AUGUST | 7:30PM | 5 BURWOOD HWY, WANTIRNA, VIC
Walk with me tonight into the heart of a Muslim city. Entering the homes there, we find different perspectives and experiences of Islam in the lives of Muslim women and men. What perspectives have we primarily engaged with in the past, and why? What are the areas in women’s lives that might offer us new insights into Islam? Examples for us to choose from include Rites of passage, Family, Hospitality, Purity and Prayer. We will find that these topics help us in understanding Muslim women, and Muslim men also, and how to read the Bible to engage with Islam.
Moyra is well known scholar of Islam and has published a number of books.
