This panel discussion brings together renowned feminist scholars and activists to overview the trajectory of women’s movements and feminist activism in predominantly Muslim countries. As part of Aga Khan University’s Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations’s 20th Anniversary Events, the panel aims to celebrate the achievements of the women’s movements for gender equality in Muslim contexts and discuss their legacies. It will analyze the main issues of struggle for women’s rights movements, the past and present of organizational structures, and forms of activism by reflecting especially on the cases of Egypt, Iran, Pakistan, and Tunisia. The discussion will provide comparative insights into contemporary challenges women’s activisms face in Muslim contexts as well as avenues for transnational feminist collaborations.
