UPDATE: The paper, Debunking the Myth that Islam Requires Female Circumcision, is now available for download! Click here to receive your copy!
We invite you to attend the inaugural presentation of KARAMAH’s newest publication in our Current Issues Series: Debunking the Myth that Islam Requires Female Circumcision.
KARAMAH is presenting this paper at the UN Commission on the Status of Women’s Conference in March. Join us in the movement to end FGM through education and advocacy.
For the last 24 years, KARAMAH’s mission has been to educate both Muslims and non-Muslims about the just, gender-equitable principles of Islam, and to provide the community with Islamic jurisprudence that emphasizes gender equity and encourages intellectual growth, conflict resolution, and leadership development. KARAMAH has worked on civil rights and family law issues impacting Muslim women since its founding. It is a go-to organization for questions regarding general rights and safety including the Islamic position on FGM. FGM is consistently listed as a barrier to equality and religious freedom for women and girls worldwide, especially in rural areas. Help us raise awareness for women’s rights and stopping FGM by attending this event.
