Lecture about Islam and women on Wednesday

Satrio Wicaksono ’10 writes:

A 2005 Gallup Poll found that many American women named gender inequality as the thing they admire least about the Muslim world. Let us hear the perspective of our Muslim Chaplain, Sister Marwa Aly on this issue. Several questions will be posed: Are Islamic societies inherently oppressive to women? What are the purposes of veil? Why does it seem that more women in the Muslim world are appearing once again in veils, and what does it signify? You can also ask your own questions regarding the issue of women and Islam. Come, refreshments will be provided!
