Event Description:
Accepted Coverage: Muslim Women & Sports Media
Shireen Ahmed, Sports Activist & Freelance Writer
Wednesday, February 8
Driscoll Hall Auditorium
6:30 PM
Shireen Ahmed is a sports activist, freelance writer and public speaker who focuses on Muslim women and the intersection of racism and misogyny in sports.
At a time when political rhetoric is blatantly misogynist, mainstream media continues to struggle with its depictions of Muslim women. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in sports media—at least in part due to its lack of diversity. This talk examines how sports media covers Muslim women, showing little understanding of the geo-political challenges and obstacles facing these women or the rich history of Muslim women in sports.
