Reconciling Gender Equality and Islam in Morrocco – putting Islamic feminist knowledge to work for gender justice

  • Projektnummer CKU-22-TA-06

  • Partner ISIS Center for Women Development, Morocco
  • Land Marokko

Islamic feminist knowledge presents gender equal interpretations and perspectives of Islam that challenge current gender unjust legislation and social practices in a country like Morocco. The overall goal of this project is to increase awareness among women’s rights organizations, religious actors, judges and decision makers of Islamic feminist perspectives on social issues that are hampering Moroccan women in becoming full and free agents. The project seeks to unravel how the agenda of Freedom of Religion or Belief and Islamic feminist perspectives may combine in order to increase women’s religious rights and increase awareness of the FoRB agenda more generally. The project will test if civil society associations, decision makers and religious advisors when prompted, will apply Islamic feminist perspectives in activism and advice.
