Islamism's War Against Women - Canadian Women Speak Out

Category :: Education
Moderator: Barbara Kay, Opinion Columnist, National Post

Special Guest Speakers: Raheel Raza, Natasha Fatah, Marina Nemat

Our distinguished speakers will address the issue of gender apartheid in the Middle East, and how it impacts Canada.

Honour killings, domestic abuse, forced child marriage, and the enslavement of women is a barbaric 6th Century philosophy that has emigrated to our country.

Please join us to learn more about this phenomenon, and to enhance awareness about what we can do to prevent it.

Raheel Raza is a Muslim Canadian journalist, author, and anti-racism activist.

Marina Nemat is the best-selling author of two books chronicling her experience as a teenager, imprisoned in Tehran during the Iranian revolution.

Natasha Fatah is a Muslim Canadian journalist and producer.
