Women in Islam: a talk by Prof. Gwendolyn Zoharah Simmons

Sunday, Mar 17, 2013 2:00p to 3:30p

Gwendolyn Zoharah Simmons, a Senior Lecturer in Islamic Studies at the University of Florida, will be delivering a free talk on Women in Islam.

Prof. Simmons will discuss the history of "the veil" and other aspects of Muslim culture. The talk is open to everyone and we encourage the community to learn more about Islam in a family-friendly atmosphere.

The lecture will also highlight the recently published book The Quiet Revolution by Leila Ahmed.
