 UTSpeaks - Cronulla, Conflict and Culture
 Tuesday 5 September

 How can muslim women be heard in Australia?

 Following the Cronulla riots, Muslim women have again found themselves
targets of violence and abuse in public places.

 Meanwhile public figures claiming to defend women's rights have added to
conflict by damning Islam as misogynistic and a threat to Australia's
egalitarian culture.

 In this climate, how can Muslim women speak publicly about cultural change
without fuelling further hatred? This free public lecture confronts issues
of feminism, nationalism and Islamophobia in the post-9/11 world.

 Dr Christina Ho

 Christina Ho lectures in Social Inquiry in the UTS Faculty of Humanities
and Social Sciences. She researches migration, multiculturalism and gender
and is currently working on a project in partnership with the Muslim Women
Association entitled "Sanctuary and Security in Contemporary Australia:
Muslim Women's Networks, 1980-2005".
