Many misconceptions surround the roles and lives of Muslim women.  Come learn about the traditional roles of women in the family, how women are addressed in the Qur’an, and some history about the woman’s position in society.   There will also be discussion of the many different variations of Muslim women found around the world and the stereotypes surrounding them.
