‘Indian Muslim Women’s Struggles for Equality, Justice and Empowerment’

(21-23 May 2011)

The Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, is hosting a three-day workshop on the 21st –23rd of May, 2011, to bring together activists and scholars working on issues related to Muslim women’s struggles for equality and justice and for their economic, educational, social and political empowerment. The aim of the workshop is to discuss ongoing initiatives and struggles, locate crucial issues that need to be foregrounded to galvanise such struggles and promote networking between activists and scholars working on these issues who are located in different parts of the country. The discussions would focus on the following issues:

  1. Personal narratives: How participants’ interest in the issue of Muslim women’s subordination and the need for the empowerment evolved, and details of the initiatives they have been engaged in.
  2. Reflections on the Muslim religious and political leadership, the Muslim and the ‘mainstream’ media, agencies of the state, political parties, NGOs, and ‘secular’ women’s groups and movements to issues of Muslim women’s marginality and the quest for their social, economic and educational advancement.
  3. The need to critique and challenge patriarchal understandings of Islam, and to promote alternate Islamic discourses based on gender equality and justice, and the prospects as well as hurdles in the path of evolving such alternate discourses. Related to this is the issue of the limits of a single frame of reference—whether based on Islamic or secular human rights discourse—to articulate the agenda of Muslim women’s empowerment, and the need for synergy between Islamic and secular human rights or Constitutional frames of reference.
  4. The task of foregrounding Muslim women’s concerns and issues at the policy-making level, in the media and in the agenda of Muslim organisations.
  5. The task of linking Muslim women’s initiatives and struggles for justice and equality within the broader Muslim community to ongoing efforts to justice and empowerment for Muslims as a whole in the wider context of debates about democracy and social justice. This would include practical suggestions as to what can be done in this regard.
  6. Linking Muslim women’s struggles for justice and equality to the need for reforms in the current regime of Muslim Personal Law, and how this task can be furthered with the help of experiences of reforms in personal law statutes in several Muslim countries.
  7. A critique of dominant notions of multiculturalism and minority rights that pay scant attention to internal hierarchies within marginalised communities (i.e. minorities within minorities), based on class, caste and gender,  and the possibilities of linking Muslim women’s struggles to those of other struggles within the broader Muslim community, such as that of Dalit and OBC Muslims.

The Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, will cover the cost of your travel by train (AC Two Tier) and accommodation (from 20th to 23rd May, 2011).
