Asma Uddin will speak on the topic “Islam & Gay Marriage in America” on September 9, 3:30-5:30 pm at Georgetown University’s Center for Contemporary Arab Studies boardroom.

Asma is also the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of altmuslimah.com, a web magazine dedicated to issues on gender and Islam. Her work at altmuslimah has earned the praise of many, including Dr. Robert George of Princeton University, who has said, “On matters of sexual morality, marriage, and family in Islam, particularly in the American context, I recommend the writings of two exceptionally gifted young Muslim women writers: Suzy Ismail and Asma Uddin.” The Huffington Post’s Senior Religion Editor, Paul Brandeis Raushenbush noted, “AltMuslimah.com is important because it gives a specific platform to the intersections between gender, belief and well-being in Islam — all with superior levels of intellect and writing. The internet would be the poorer without AltMuslimah as a destination and font of knowledge for seekers of all religious backgrounds.”

Asma speaks and publishes widely on issues of gender and faith, and national and international religious freedom. She also serves on the Islam and Religious Freedom Advisory Council.
