Alaa Murabit on What Islam Says about Women at TEDWomen 2015

Written by

In 2015, Alaa Murabit was a speaker at TEDWomen in Monterey, California.

According to TEDWomen, "Alaa Murabit's family moved from Canada to Libya when she was 15. Before, she’d felt equal to her brothers, but in this new environment she sensed big prohibitions on what she could accomplish. As a proud Muslim woman, she wondered: was this really religious doctrine? With humor, passion and a refreshingly rebellious spirt, she shares how she discovered examples of female leaders from across the history of her faith — and how she launched a campaign to fight for women's rights using verses directly from the Koran."
