  • Italy: Female Muslims to discuss their rights on Women’s Day

    Milan, 26 Feb 2008 (AKI) – To commemorate International Women’s Day on 8 March, Muslim women’s groups in Italy have organised a meeting discuss their rights.

    Entitled ‘A free woman in a free society’, the event will be held in the northern Italian city of Milan on 9 March. The meeting has been promoted by the women’s section at Milan’s House of Islamic Culture.

    “This is the second year that we are promoting this initiative which talks about women and in a particular way, Muslim women,” the organiser of the event, Sumaya al-Barq, told Adnkronos International (AKI).

    “We have taken the occasion of 8 March to meet those who are interested to know us and listen to us,” she said.

    Al-Barq, who is a member of the Young Muslims of Italy (GMI) said that those involved in the main round-table discussion include women from the Association of Muslim Women of Italy (ADMI), Young Muslims of Italy (GMI) and the European Forum of Muslim Women.

    At the meeting, women are also expected to recount their personal experiences of integrating into Italian society.

    “They are women who want to be active, constructive protagonists,”
