Global Perspectives on Violence Against Women

with Dr. Azizah al-Hibri

Tuesday, September 30

6:00 p.m.

Borg Warner Auditorium, IAVS

The Office for Student Engagement and the Women’s Resource Center invite you to join us for the campus visit of Dr. Azizah al-Hibri.  Dr. al-Hibri will be giving a lecture entitled Global Perspectives on Violence Against Women, in the BorgWarner Auditorium in the IAVS on Tuesday, September 30, at 6:00 pm with a reception immediately following.  Her lecture will focus on violence against women within a global context.

Last spring the university had a program scheduled to address violence and inequality among women from across the globe. Unfortunately panel availability changed on the day of the event and the event was postponed. Since this subject is an important one to discuss, across all cultures and religions, programming has been enhanced and expanded to include student classroom lectures, community meetings and the at-large campus lecture on September 30.

Dr. al-Hibri currently serves as Professor Emerita of Law at Richmond University as well as the Founder and Chair, KARAMAH: Muslim Women Lawyers for Human Rights.  Her work has centered on developing an Islamic jurisprudence and body of Islamic law that are gender equitable and promote human rights and democratic governance. Professor al-Hibri has authored numerous book chapters, essays, and law review articles on these subjects, and her work has appeared in the highly respected Journal of Law and Religion, Harvard International Review, and University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law, among other venues. In 2011, Professor al-Hibri was appointed by President Obama to serve as a commissioner on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. She received the Virginia First Freedom Award from the Council for America's First Freedom in 2007, the Dr. Betty Shabazz Recognition Award from Women in Islam in 2006, and the University of Richmond's Distinguished Educator Award in 2004, and was named a Fulbright scholar in 2001. Professor al-Hibri is the founding editor of Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy, and founder and president of the organization KARAMAH: Muslim Women Lawyers for Human Rights.
