Muslim Women Protest Policies At Islamic Center

Over the weekend, approximately 20 women protested gender segregated prayer facilities at the Islamic Center of Washington (District of Columbia), but the protest ended when police asked them to leave or be arrested: Asra Nomani, a leading Islamic feminist who led a similar protest in West Virginia, said: “We have this generation of American Muslim women who are saying look you want us to go to Harvard, to rise to the highest level of Wall Street firms and you want us to sit where in the mosque?”.
