From dramatic events like the attempted murder of Malala Yousafzai to the everyday wearing of the hijab in many parts of the Middle East, the lens through which the West views Middle Eastern women is often focused on their oppression—either real or perceived. How accurate is this lens? Where do our views of the Middle East come from? And what does modern Middle Eastern feminism look like? Presented in conjunction with ACT Theatre’s production of Threesome.
Speakers: Yussef El Guindi, award-winning playwright of Threesome; and Sarah Eltantawi, professor of Middle Eastern Studies and Comparative Religion at The Evergreen State College.
