Dr. Munazza Yaqoob from the International Islamic University in Islamabad, Pakistan visited the United States in July. I caught up with her in Taos, New Mexico and asked her about her visit to the United States.
As usual much more was discussed than just her visit, and in addition to talking about the wide open spaces of the American Southwest we talked about women’s rights around the world, Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, women’s representation in politics, fatwas against women working for women, and global sisterhood.
What do you think about her thoughts on the state of global feminism?
