Bodily Autonomy, Integrity and Sexual Rights

Sexuality is often central to the production of the idea of Islamic ‘difference,’ and an area of hyperfocus both from xenophobic and neocolonialist actors, and fundamentalisms. Feminist and progressive movements across Muslim contexts have long organized to challenge conservative understandings of sexuality and policing of sexual morality. At the same time we see several Muslim majority states becoming increasingly conservative on matters of sexual rights over time. 

 

WLUML’s Bodily Autonomy and Integrity program seeks to support, link and visibilize feminist narratives, tactics and demands from across Muslim contexts that advocate for rights to bodily autonomy.
