On the #MeToo crisis, close to home …an article extracted  from my Confernece presentation at the ‘Agency for Muslim Women: An Australian Context’ on February 22nd
“The recent spate of sexual abuse and sexual impropriety incidents have affirmed that the Muslim community and some of its most visible and prominent figures are far from immune to this affliction.
It is the community that must police itself and take any and all measures to prevent further damage to its women.
Grassroots movements are helpful, but Muslim organisations must recalibrate existing mechanisms to optimise their own role if they are to maintain their leadership and authority. They can do this by being gender representative, and pro-active for change. Silence or inaction is complicity.” #endmisogyny #endviolenceagainstwomen #endsexism #tasneemchopra #crossculturalconsultant #muslimwomen
