Dispel Islamic Myths

Knowledge is the key to overcoming stereotypes. Asra Nomani will be speaking about the paradox of women in Islam and shedding some light on a few subjects.

Monique Robinson Wright, Director of Student Life and Diversity Initiatives said, “I think it is important for people to attend so that their perspective and understanding of Islam can be broadened and hopefully dispel myths.”

Asra Nomani is a former Wall Street Journal reporter and has written many articles about women’s rights in Islam. She passionately fought for change so that women could pray in the main prayer space among men in her mosque.

Nomani will be speaking in the auditorium of Caudill Hall on Wednesday October 7, at 12:15 p.m. and 7p.m.
