#ImamsForShe: Defying Violence against Women and Girls

  • United Nations Geneva Switzerland

MPV is hosting an informal consultation on #ImamsForShe at the United Nations in Geneva, after a successful launch event at the Commission on the Status of Women Session 59 in New York earlier this year. #ImamsForShe is an initiative to support and empower Imams, religious leaders and Islamic scholars who debunk misogynistic interpretations of Islamic scripture and traditions that have led to human rights violations against women and girls across Muslim-majority countries and within Muslim communities in the West. This private and informal consultation provides an opportunity for Imams, Muslim women's human rights activists and defenders, policy makers and NGO representatives to have a constructive discussion on strategic language and steps in bringing a positive change to those women and girls deprived of basic human dignity.
