Presentation by Dr. Shaireen Rasheed, professor of Philosophy and Educational Foundations, College of Education, Information and Technology, LIU Post.
Women’s interests have been the civilizing mission in the war on terror. And the veil continues to take the center stage to this discourse. This presentation critically elucidates why and how these discourses that surround the oppression of Muslim woman have become the yardstick to measure the West’s secular stand on liberal rights, especially in the manifestation of rights pertaining to Muslim women’s sexuality.
This event is free and open to the public. The event is sponsored by the LIU Post Library and partners, and supported by a grant from the New York Council for the Humanities. For further information call IMC, Library at 516-299-2895
