NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- An award-winning columnist specializing in Arab and Muslim issues and global feminism is set to deliver a talk at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 10, at the College of New Rochelle's Romita Auditorium.
Mona Eltahawy's lecture "Feminism: The Social and Sexual Revolution Goes Global," has been given since 1987 and is free to the public.
Eltahawy's honors over the years are numerous.
She was among those featured in TIME magazine's "People of the Year," in 2012, the same year she was awarded the Missouri School of Journalism's Honor Medial for Distringuished Service in Journalism. Her book, Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution, was released in April 2015.
“The Women’s Studies Program has a long standing commitment to examining how gender, as a social construct, interacts with other forms of identity, such as race, ethnicity, class, and sexual identity,” said Rebecca Lafleur, associate professor of psychology and director of Women’s Studies at the college. “Mona’s work as a journalist and feminist activist focusing on Arab and Muslim women speaks directly to this goal."
The lecture is sponsored by the Women’s Studies Committee of the School of Arts and Sciences.
The College of New Rochelle is located at 29 Castle Place. The college's main telephone number is 914-654-5000. For more information, call the school or visit its website .
