Our former Board member, Sarah Sayeed, spoke about Muslim women in the mosque.
REPORT ON MUSLIM WOMEN IN SACRED SPACES SYMPOSIUM
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.
