Muslim Journeys

Last night's Muslim Journeys event was great. Harvard Divinity School professor Leila Ahmed participated in a discussion of her book, A Quiet Revolution: The Veil's Resurgence, from the Middle East to America.  We had a good turnout, and everyone who participated in the discussion had interesting questions and shared well-informed opinions. The conversation ranged from  the history of this highly symbolic garment to the differences in religious practice and culture in various Islamic nations. leila3 A young woman wearing a hijab attended, and she shared what it means to her and the experiences (and family reactions) of friends her age who decided to take up the practice. The evening was everything we hoped it would be. Thank you, everyone who attended. Especially Dr. Ahmed.
