On 26 May 2016 in Brussels, the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) will present the results of a two-year project on the multiple discrimination affecting Muslim women in eight EU countries. The event will be the first ever EU symposium to specifically address intersectional aspects of racism against Muslim women.
Royal Belgian Library, Brussels
Through a unique and innovative joint effort between the anti-racism and women’s rights movements, our project "Forgotten Women: the impact of Islamophobia on Muslim women" highlights what it is like to be a Muslim woman in Europe.
The symposium aims to launch ENAR’s report on the impact of islamophobia on Muslim women, provide in-depth analysis to improve the implementation of EU equality and non-discrimination legislation and develop alliances between Muslim and women’s rights movements.
Please register by 12 May.
