I’ve written a lot about Muslims and Feminism on this site, and I thought it would be a good idea to highlight the sterling work of sister Zara Faris, who is also member of the Muslim Debate Initiative. She has debated Feminists on whether women need Feminism generally, but has also debated the topic ‘Do Muslims Need Feminism?’ on TV.
To showcase the lively and fascinating discussion which was televised live on the Islam Channel on 6th September 2013, I’ve included a link below. The program discussed and debated on the topic of feminism, and whether Muslims need feminism, or whether calling for comprehensive Islamic rights is what is needed.
