World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.
The idea that Muslim women are more oppressed than women of other religions is a common belief in the U.S. today, but this wasn’t the case 20 years ago. On this week’s episode of World Policy On Air, we speak with Dr. Leila Ahmed, an Egyptian-born author and the first appointed professor of women’s studies in religion at Harvard Divinity School.
Dr. Leila Ahmed spoke with us earlier this year in the World Policy Blog’s weekly Talking Policy interview series.
