The Middle Eastern Student Association will host a discussion about “Women in the Middle East” from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 30, in the seminar room at the Center for Global Citizenship.
We understand there are many misconstrued narratives of the experiences of Middle Eastern women, founded on stereotypes and other negative sentiments. With this event we intend on creating a platform for women to be the creators of this narrative and communicate to others their true experiences. These can coincide with those in the mainstream as well as they can be completely opposite. We are not interested in one particular lens but for genuine desire to share with others one’s stories or a historical context of Middle Eastern women, whether in the United States or abroad.
