20 October: PUBLIC MEETING 'Ask a Muslim Woman...'
ASK A MUSLIM WOMAN...
Fear and ignorance are the fuel for religious bigotry and intolerance. Learn about the realities of Islam and the status of women in Muslim society. What divides Muslims and Christians? What divides Sunni from Shia? In Islam, who is tolerant, who is extreme, who is dangerous? Are Muslim women oppressed or free? What do Muslims think about Britain and western values? Come and put your questions to our speaker, JULIE SIDDIQI.
Director of the Islamic Society of Britain from 2010 to 2014, Julie Siddiqi is one of the most prominent and influential Muslims in the UK. A frequent broadcaster, she has 20 years of experience championing Muslim women’s rights and fostering relations between Muslims, Jews and Christians.
The meeting is on Thursday 20 October 2016 at 7.30 pm at the Coach House Theatre, Grange Road, MALVERN WR14 3HA. Admission £5 (Students £2) - Tickets in person or by post (with cheque to ’Amnesty International’ and s.a.e.) from Books for Amnesty, 3 Edith Walk, Malvern WR14 4QH.
