“Working Against Domestic and Sexual Violence in Muslim Communities: A Conversation”
What are the barriers to effectively addressing gender-based violence in Muslim communities? How do systems of power and privilege affect which victims are (and aren’t) believed and protected? Who gets access to services, information, and safety and how can access be expanded? How can those working against domestic and sexual violence center the Islamic value of mercy?
