Philadelphia: Women in Sacred Spaces Symposium

Our former Board member, Sarah Sayeed, spoke about Muslim women in the mosque.

REPORT ON MUSLIM WOMEN IN SACRED SPACES SYMPOSIUM

CAIR-Philadelphia
When statistics show (Report from the Mosque Study Project (MSP) conducted by CAIR, ISNA, Ministry of WD Muhammad & ICNA, 2001) that only 18% of women attend mosques and that over 2/3 of mosques use dividers, while only 13% of mosques allow female participation on boards, it’s no wonder Muslim women feel like second-class citizens in their communities.

These statistics were shared during CAIR-Philadelphia’s groundbreaking Muslim Women in Sacred Spaces Symposium on February 6th at Villanova University.
