Some links for Friday, October 12, 2007:
Dr. Ruqaya Al Alwani is presented with the Tunisian President Award for her publication The Role of the Muslim Women in Development
Al-Ahram argues that the Carnegie Endowment on International Peace’s recent publication on the status of women in Islamic movements is biased.
Some good musings about the attire of Muslim women in the media.
An interview with ISNA’s (the Islamic Society of North America) new president, Ingrid Mattson, who I think is pretty cool. It’s telling of an accepting community when it can elect a non-Arab, non-Muslim born woman who reverted to Islam (AND kept her name) as the president of ISNA. AND she leads prayer. Damn, that’s cool.
