Muslim and Arab Women Speak Out



February 2003 - U.S. Federation for Middle East (“UFMEP”) President, Mrs. Salwa Kader, hosted a panel discussion on “Muslim and Arab Women Speak Out” as part of the 50th session on the Commission on the Status of Women (“CSW”) at the United Nations Headquarters in New York city. The panel focused on the misconceptions and generalized views held by the West towards Muslim and Arab women. The panelists strived to show that Muslim and Arab women are not simply silent victims of oppression, as commonly perceived, but are rather active and involved members of society with dynamic views and perspectives.
