Gender, Feminism, and Islam: Guidance for workers in the humanitarian and international development sector

Training date
Registration deadline

This virtual workshop will help international development and humanitarian practitioners recognize common myths and stereotypes about gender and Islam that are still very common in the development, humanitarian, and human rights sectors. Participants will explore decolonized approaches to the design of gender equality and gender integrated programs in Muslim-majority countries while learning from feminist movements in the Muslim world. All participants will receive a manual with essential information and a certificate to acknowledge their achievements in the course.

Why take this course? Much of the international development and humanitarian policy and programming that occurs in Muslim-majority communities is created by people who are not from those communities. Instead, it is often created by people from countries that have a long history of stereotyping and misunderstanding Islam. This is particularly true when it comes to stereotypes about gender, feminism, and Islam. If this resonates with you, this course is for you!
