WCC; 3007 Room

Please join us for a presentation by Havva Guney-Ruebenacker, Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School, on the theory of marriage in Islamic law. In this presentation, Havva will discuss her ongoing work on Islamic legal critiques that challenge the legitimacy of women’s inequality in Islamic law’s traditional theory of marriage, advance a new egalitarian Islamic theory of marriage, and offer a concrete reform proposal to achieve women’s equality in divorce and post-divorce property rights in Islamic law.

Lunch will be provided.

This event is sponsored by the Program on Law and Society in the Muslim World and the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School.
