Reclaiming Our Stories

Our speaker will address images of the “Muslim” woman through a lens of a secular upbringing and a journey to intersectional humanism in a North American context.  The “Muslim” woman is not one single story any more than “the Humanist” is a completed project.  Reclaiming and insisting upon multiple narratives is a feminist act of resistance.  Humanist women emerging from Muslim backgrounds are refusing to be reduced to stereotypes or robbed of narratives of their more varied and texture selves.  Centuries of Orientalist and colonial bias in academia and politics have suppressed the complex histories and the diverse cultures from which these women emerged.

Ginan Rauf is one of the co-founders of An Nas along with Noura Embabi and Hannah Abassi. We invite you to learn more about An-Nas’s humanist vision and ongoing experiment with community building.

Music by Lindsey Wilson.
