Katherine Zoepf—Excellent Daughters: The Secret Lives of the Young Women Who Are Transforming the Arab World
Thursday, October 27, 6:30–7:45 p.m.

Today, Arab women outnumber men in universities, and a few are beginning to face down religious and social tradition in order to live independently, delay marriage, and pursue professional goals. Hundreds of thousands of devout girls and women are attending Qur’anic schools—and using the training to argue for greater freedoms from an Islamic perspective. And, in 2011, young women helped to lead protests in the Arab Spring. Join Katherine Zoepf, author of Excellent Daughters, for a conversation with CGA clinical assistant professor Sylvia Maier on the changing lives of this generation of Arab daughters from Syria to Lebanon, and Abu Dhabi to Saudi Arabia.
