Khadija Conference 2013
Note: The conference will be held mainly in English. Interpretation to Arabic and Swedish will be provided.
The first Khadija Conference in 2012 hosted domestic and international scholars, ministers, government officials, diplomats and organizations in an attempt to address the importance of women empowerment from a Muslim perspective. Held in Tollare Community College, 20 km in the south of Stockholm, speakers from Egypt, Tunisia, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Qatar and the Arab League converged with one common goal in mind: for two days, speakers and participants presented, debated, cooperated and collaborated for the betterment of women empowerment.
The Khadija Conference is an international forum which aims to promote sustainable women empowerment and gender equality from an Islamic perspective. The conference aims to reverse the significant decline in the Muslim women’s involvement in society, as well as the under-representation of women in the family, politics and religion. Using Khadija (r.a.) as an example, the main purpose of the conference is to promote the empowerment of women as being an indispensable part of a healthy and vibrant society.
Following the success of the first Khadija Conference in 2012, we follow suit with contemporary developments in women empowerment pertaining to the Muslim women. Mark your calendars today, and join us once more in Stockholm for the 2nd International Khadija Conference 2013!
