Islamic Perspective on Engaging Men & Boys to End Violence in the Family

Authored by Dr Ayesha S Chyaudhry and Dr Rumee Ahmed, ‘Islamic Perspective on Engaging Men & Boys to End Violence in the Family’ looks at the textual sources that form the foundation of Islam’s egalitarian spirit, considers the challenges posed by historical interpretations of these sources, and thinks about ways to move forward in promoting gender equity, especially with respect to condemning domestic violence in all its forms.

This resource forms part of a three-year project instigated by the Canadian Council for Muslim Women (CCMW) with the goal to engage men and boys from Muslim communities to end violence in the family.

Further resources in English and French including a toolkit, posters and brochures can be downloaded from the CCMW website here.
