Congratulations, Mona! And for another female journalist…

Alif mabrouk (a thousand congratulations) to Mona Eltahawy for her receipt of the Samir Kassir Award for Freedom of the Press!!  Read Mona’s award-winning article here.

Dr. Ibtihal Al-Khatib

For those of you who haven’t heard of her, another interesting  journalist to check out is Dr. Ibtihal Al-Khatib. I saw this interview last year. In it, she argues that secularism may be a path to religious freedom for everyone – including, if not especially – Muslims.  (The previous link is a transcript. Here is a video of Dr. Al-Khatib’s interview, in Arabic with English subtitles.)

One thought on “Congratulations, Mona! And for another female journalist…

  1. i am very interested to hear Dr Ibtihal.
    She’s amaizing,really i didn’t hear such ideas issued from new
    cultivated generation.
    I am proud of her,i assist her new academic & scientific vew.
    I ll be very pleased in meeting her in Koweit or in Beirut or elsewhere.
    My best regards to DR Ibtihal
