Radical Muslim Feminist calls for Changes in Mosques


Hind Makki, a radical Muslim feminist, looks at mosques around the world who allow and do not allow women to pray together.  She highlights the successes and failures in her Tumbler blog called, Side Entrance.  Her work and blog was also noticed by the Huffington Post, which just did an interesting story about her and her motivations.  The story also includes a slideshow of women prayer areas around the world. You can follow Hind Makki on Twitter at @HindMakki.

Religion students might enjoy this story and it might provide an opportunity for students to compare women and prayer in other religions.
