Islam grants women rights that are then taken away by patriarchy: Interview with Samina Ali

Author and curator Samina Ali has written a novel, founded a feminist organization, been an ambassador, and the one strand running through all her work is her determination to create a greater awareness about Islam. “There’s nothing in the faith itself that diminishes women – it’s power, politics, and sometimes a purposeful misapplication of Islamic law,” said Ali. Ali’s most recent project is the International Museum of Women’s Muslima: Muslim Women’s Art and Voices, an online exhibition about Muslim women that she has curated.
