Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution

Students (with ID) free of charge, EventBrite promo code student15

Wednesday, May 6, 2015 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Description

Since the beginning of the Arab Spring, women in the Arab world have had two revolutions to wage: one fought with men against oppressive regimes, and another fought against an entire political and economic system that treats women as second-class citizens.

What can we do to work for equal rights for women in the Arab world? Why is it so hard to substantively fight against misogyny in North Africa and the Middle East?

A native of Egypt, Mona Eltahawy is an activist, journalist, and contributor to The New York Times opinion pages. She is the author of Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution.

Naureen Chowdhury Fink will lead the conversation. She is head of research and analysis for the Global Center on Cooperative Security, and also focuses on the international and multilateral response to terrorism and related challenges.
