WISE:
Women’s Islamic Initiative in
Spirituality and Equity aims to address the
current lack of women’s participation in
contemporary debates about the political,
social, and religious concerns of Muslim
women in the global community. In
continuing the dialogue, the initiative will
create an opportunity for different voices to
discuss issues of women’s rights, roles, and
responsibilities, and generate a broader, more
inclusive Islamic framework for understanding
global Muslim women’s issues.
WISE’s Objectives:
1.
The development of an international
council of empowered Muslim women
as an institution, working toward
gender and social justice who will put
out positions on issues of relevance
and concern to Muslim women
globally.
2.
To create a space in which Muslim
women actively dialogue debate and
collaborate on issues of Muslim
women’s rights and responsibilities.
3.
To increase awareness of ongoing
advancements in Muslim women’s
rights in Muslim societies in the West.
4.
To reexamine the nexus of culture
and religion in it’s capacity as a
barrier to Muslim women’s
advancement.
5.
To build solidarity with the forum
representatives who come from
fragmented movements
6.
To raise awareness of women’s
power in social change and
philanthropy.
