Muslim Community Efforts against Domestic Violence
About The Event
Sajida Jalalzai in conversation with Juliane Hammer, author of Peaceful Families (Princeton 2019)
Date: April 1, 2021 – 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Venue: Online via Zoom
In Peaceful Families, Juliane Hammer chronicles and examines the efforts, stories, arguments, and strategies of individuals and organizations doing Muslim anti-domestic violence work in the United States. Looking at connections among ethical practices, gender norms, and religious interpretation, Hammer demonstrates how Muslim advocates mobilize a rich religious tradition in community efforts against domestic violence, and identify religion and culture as resources or roadblocks to prevent harm and to restore family peace.
