Abstract
 
Description
As a Muslim clergy within the City of New York, I have observed the age-old negative behaviors of gender inequality in sacred spaces (Masjids) and how worshippers practice gender inequality and other superstitions as opposed to acts of kindness and mutual respect as taught by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This demonstration project created a Public Awareness Campaign on the topic of gender inequality which is an antecedent to various other forms of abuse.
The paper details the evolution of women and Islam, their status—both historic and contemporary, and the path to Domestic Violence. A series of presentations within the American Islamic community hopes to bring attention to the scourge of Domestic Violence and the wherewithal to both recognize its sinister power and begin understanding and healing within the community.
