In this TED Talk, Alaa Murabit talks about her experience as a Muslim woman moving from Canada to Libya as a teenager, looking for female role models in Islamic history, and seeing women as active participants in the Libyan revolution. She draws from her family and religion to assert the importance of women being “at the table” in order to fight for their rights and against their persecution. This talk would make a great conversation starter, or provide one of many possible perspectives on women’s rights in the Middle East. >
