More Than Meets the Eye: Muslim Women & Global Media Culture

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

With grass-roots revolutions flaring across the Middle-East, the voices of everyday citizens are becoming more and more prominent. One of the forces fuelling this revolution is the significant rise of social media, and a powerful presence of online feminist activism. With the IWD theme of “equal access to education, training, and science and technology” in mind, Fatemeh Fakhraie (founder-editor of Muslimah Media Watch and a contributor to CNN, Racialicious, B*tch Magazine, and AltMuslimah) discusses both online Islamic feminist activism and the portrayal of Muslim women in global media.
