Episode #2407

KQED World: Sat, Apr 25, 2015 -- 4:00 AM

*A new documentary Gender Equality in Islam
*Islam has some 1.6 billion followers around the world, making it the world's second-largest religion after Christianity. That said, a new crop of female Islamic scholars says there is nothing in the Koran that treats women unequally.
*Instead, they argue, through the years, Muslim women have been marginalized by cultural practices and patriarchal interpretations. These reformers say Quranic verses have been wrongly interpreted to favor men. And now is the time to observe its true meaning and treat Muslim women the same as Muslim men.
* Dr. Azizah Al-Hibri, a law professor and Islamic scholar started a non- profit organization called Karamah - a name that comes from the Qur'anic verse which reads: "We have given dignity to the Children of Adam."
*Karamah's goal is to advance the gender-equitable principles of Islam to Muslim women in the U.S. and around the world and to support the rights of Muslim women through education programs, scholarships, and a network of Muslim jurists and leaders.
