This panel, part of the Muslim Women’s Voices Project, will feature a discussion of Islamophobia and anti-Muslim sentiments, which have proven so influential among non-Muslim Americans and Europeans. The panel will ask questions that will prepare the community for the larger, year-long look into the complexities that challenge what are often one-dimensional popular portrayals of Islam, gender, and Muslim groups and cultures.
