We invite you to attend our inaugural presentation of KARAMAH Research Division's newest publication in our Current Issues Series: Debunking the Myth that Islam Requires Female Circumcision.
This roundtable discussion is an exclusive event before KARAMAH presents the 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.
KARAMAH has worked on civil rights and family law issues impacting Muslim women since its founding in 1993. 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 to women and girls worldwide, especially in rural areas. Help us raise awareness for women’s rights and stopping FGM by attending.
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.
