How are activists in various Muslim contexts mobilising for change? What strategies are they using? Why did they start, and how did they amplify and sustain their advocacy around Muslim family law reform in their countries? What are some of the challenges they faced? What factors enabled them to push for reform?
Join Musawah’s Marwa Sharafeldin in this conversation with six amazing Muslim women activists from around the world—Azza Soliman (Egypt), Shareena Sheriff (Malaysia), Ermiza Tegal (Sri Lanka), Noorjehan Safia Niaz (India), Ayesha Royker (South Africa) and Hala AlKarib (Greater Horn of Africa)—and be inspired as they share how they are leading movements in their own countries and regions to organise and mobilise for social change.
The Global Conference on Muslim Family Law Reform is the inaugural international gathering for Musawah’s Campaign for Justice in Muslim Family Laws, which aims to bring together women’s rights activists, academics and policy makers in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa to create a global momentum for the urgent necessity to end discrimination against women in the family.
