Pioneer Valley Interfaith Action Group and Critical Connections present:
MUSLIM WOMEN IN POLITICS: SHAPING NARRATIVES, SHAPING PERCEPTIONS
More than 90 Muslim-Americans, one-third of them women, sought and are seeking elected office this year. What are the cultural and political forces driving their decisions? What are the challenges and opportunities they face in running for political office? How have they shaped the narrative around Muslim women in the United States, and what is the future for Muslim engagement in the political process? Please join us for a conversation with Ms. Tahirah Amatul Wadud and Professor Shaheen Pasha.
