The Many Faces of Muslim Women

If you are in the NJ/Philly area this Friday, definitely try and catch this presentation

Many Faces of Muslim Women:
Rights Have No Borders
Many Faces of Muslim Women is an innovative program aimed at advancing the understanding of the unique circumstances of Muslim women around the world and challenging the monolithic image of the Muslim woman.

A three-way collaboration between Planned Parenthood® Global Partners in Washington DC, Planned Parenthood® of Southern New Jersey (PPSNJ) and Six Rivers Planned Parenthood® (SRPP) in Eureka, CA, this project builds upon the extensive international advocacy work already taking place at the affiliates.

Experts from across the Muslim world, including Egypt, Iran, Mali and Pakistan will look at such issues as HIV/AIDS, family planning and marriage practices in Muslim countries. The speakers will examine those issues through three different lenses:
· What does the QuÂran say?
· What does the law say?
· What are the traditional practices?
They will also discuss the implications of United States
policies and restrictions on International Reproductive Health Funding.
