Public lecture by Afiya Zia on secular and Islamic feminisms.
The 'War on Terror' has received much scrutiny within a 'security' framework but the impact of the conflict on women and their political identities remains under-examined. This lecture will discuss the divisions that have split women's political movements in Pakistan, arguing that ultimately, the War on Terror and reconstruction efforts have served as exclusively male political tools rather than as drivers of women's particularised rights.
The speaker, Afiya Zia, is a Karachi-based feminist activist and scholar and is currently Visiting Research Fellow at the Institute of Advance Studies.
Entrance is free and all are welcome.
