Muslim Women Reformers

Here is a podcast to listen to if you are interested Islam as a subject. Ida Lichter has written a book titled Women Muslim Reformers and the interview on this podcast is very informative and interesting.

Ida Lichter talks about Muslim women who are fighting back against discrimination and persecution. In Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and all around the world, women are demanding reforms. Some reject Islam as patriarchal, others believe it´s completely compatible with equality.

Ida Lichter....This is great stuff Lexcen. This woman brings a helluva lot of clarity to the subject.

The feminist movement needs to get behind this.
