Susan Carland and Jamila Rizvi in conversation

Spend an evening with two amazing Australian authors, talking women, feminism and forging new paths...

The Muslim community that is portrayed to the West is a misogynist’s playground; within the Muslim community, feminism is often regarded with sneering hostility. Yet between those two views there is a group of Muslim women many do not believe exists: a diverse bunch who fight sexism from within, as committed to the fight as they are to their faith. Hemmed in by Islamophobia and sexism, they fight against sexism with their minds, words and bodies. Often, their biggest weapon is their religion. 

In Fighting Hislam, Susan Carland talks with Muslim women about how they are making a stand for their sex, while holding fast to their faith. Australian women are suffering from a crisis of confidence at work; captives of an inner voice that warns them they’re not good enough. Accustomed to being overlooked and undervalued, when women do get to the top they explain their success away as ‘luck’. But it’s not. 

A book signing will follow the vent, with books on sale during the evening.
