Abstract: The talk examines the significance of an intersectional lens in establishing the unique and specific challenges that Muslim women face within a western context as part of the #MeToo movement. The talk explores the ways that the movement is hijacked and co-opted within a western political context toward a neoliberal agenda. It also investigates some of the religious justifications used to hinder the progress of the #MeToo movement, for example, appeals to gender segregation and to unity within the Muslim ummah (nation) at the expense of Muslim women.
