Library to host “Feminism Inshallah” screening and discussion

Join us at 6 p.m. tonight in the Library Media Classroom for a screening of Feminism Inshallah: A History of Arab Feminism.

The documentary by Feriel Ben Mahmoud, a writer and filmmaker whose works focus on women’s rights in the Arab world, “recounts Arab feminism’s largely unknown story, from its taboo-shattering birth in Egypt by feminist pioneers up through viral Internet campaigns by today’s tech-savvy young activists during the Arab Spring.”

The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Dr. Christie Billups and members of Lewis’ Muslim student community. Refreshments will be served.
