This video is from Sister Zara Faris’ lecture at Southampton University (6th March, 2014). She discussed some standard Feminist criticisms against Islam, and answering the question “Women in Islam: Oppressed or Liberated?”
This lecture includes an evaluation and response to the typical feminist criticisms against the niqab, segregation, and gender roles, resulting in a highly entertaining Q andA session ranging from questions on FGM (at 51:56), Polygamy (at 1:08:08), and even Secularism and Multiculturalism (at 56:22).
Please watch and share.
