Mahnaz Afkhami discusses the stereotypes of Muslims and Muslim women commonly presented by the Western media. She notes that women in Muslim societies have a wide variety of experiences depending on the context, and expressions of Muslim feminism are a response to indigenous cultural conditions. Afkhami responds to questions from the host and from the viewing audience covering topics such as: Islamic holy texts on women's rights, discrepancies between cultural and religious traditions, the variety of Muslim women's experience, veiling/the hijab, and the presence of patriarchal customs in both Muslim majority and non-Muslim majority societies.  

This interview was with Anne Petrie of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).
