Islamic Feminism in America with Amanda Quraishi

Amanda Quraishi

In this episode of the Religious Feminism interview series, Amanda Quraishi, a Muslim feminist, talks about the unique challenges and opportunities for Islamic feminism in the United States, where more ethnically heterogenous groups attend mosques together than anywhere else in the world.  She also tells us why Islamic feminists are kind of sick of the hijab debate and that you can’t judge an Islamic feminist by her head scarf.
