Visiting Speaker: Dr Ziba Mir-Hosseini, SOAS
Muslim Legal Tradition and the Challenge of Gender Equality
Dr Ziba Mir-Hosseini (www.zibamirhosseini.com) will critically assess an assumption that underpins much of thinking around gender relations in modern Islam: that God gave men authority over women in the Quran, Sura 4, verse 34. To do this, she will use her research, and that of others, under the auspices of the Musawah project.
