WASHINGTON, DC / ACCESSWIRE / March 8, 2022 / To mark International Women's Day 2022, today, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) is highlighting its focus on women's issues in the Arab and Muslim world. The MEMRI Women's Studies Project researches, examines, translates, and analyzes Arab and Muslim primary media sources in order to report on women's status, struggles, with the aim of helping advance and promote women's rights in the region.
ABOUT THE WOMEN'S STUDIES PROJECT
The Women's Studies Initiative is a major focus of the MEMRI Reform Project. The Reform Project, established in 2002, identifies and supports advocates of reform and human rights in the Arab and Muslim world who speak out against violent extremism, discrimination, and antisemitism.
The project's research, translations, and analyses highlighting voices of reform in the Arab and Muslim world are crucial resources for keeping policymakers, media organizations, and the public at large informed about these issues. Its publication of translations of articles by reformists and videos of discussions of reform, and analysis pieces on relevant topics, serve the project's goal of giving Arab and Muslim reformists a platform from which they can reach out to their societies and to religious, political, and educational leaders, and of providing Western policymakers with a solid basis for long-term strategic plans for supporting their efforts.
