Student leaders discuss Women’s History Month
Remembering the women leaders that came before us is empowering for the youth of our time.
Kurat Abaidullah’s desire to provide spaces that empower and uplift other women comes from her faith.
“There’s this perception that in Islam, maybe women are not given the same rights as men, or women are kind of undermined, right?” said Abaidullah, a first-year biology graduate student and founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Student Association for Women. “Our community, the Ahmadiyya specifically, our sect, it makes sure and emphasizes the importance of women.”
Temple University students in women-led organizations are uplifting each other and others through student organizations and community service in order to create opportunities for future generations.
