Feminist Endowed Lecture Series Do Muslim Woman Really Need Freedom?: An Afternoon With Dr. Serene Khader

Monday, April 21, 3:15pm - 5:00pm in the Board Room North & South, 3rd Floor in the U-SU

In the aftermath of September 11, we saw wars in Iraq and Afghanistan justified in the name of “liberating” Muslim women. Postcolonial feminists responded to this fact by encouraging skepticism of the universal value of freedom. But liberal feminists worry that such skepticism means refusing to take seriously the oppression of women in “other” cultures. Dr. Serene Khader, assistant professor of Philosophy at Stony Brook University, argues it is possible to take concerns about imperialism seriously without sliding into relativism if we conceptualize feminism as a “freedom-agnostic doctrine.”
