Feminist Islamic Troublemakers of North America with Shehnaz Haqqani and Zahra Khan

Founders of FITNA: Zahra Khan, Shehnaz Haqqani (middle), and Saadia Yacoob

In this episode of the Religious Feminism interview series, Shehnaz Haqqani, Assistant Professor of Religion at Mercer University, and Zahra Khan, an activist and engineer, talk to us about the online feminist community they founded for Islamic feminists. We discuss how the inclusive theology of Islam differs from patriarchal cultural practices and about feminist initiatives within their Islamic community such as their efforts to combat all male panels.
