Ikhtyar joins CSBR!
– | Comments Off on Ikhtyar joins CSBR!

We are excited to welcome Ikhtyar Collective, from Egypt, as a new member of the Coalition for Sexual and Bodily RIghts in Muslim Societies!

Ikhtyar is a collective that works to build, produce, circulate and present a local feminist body of knowledge in Arabic around gender and sexuality using different formats: written, audio and oral.  Ikhtyar works for an accepting world, where we are not trading some rights for others. A world paving the way for the less heard to narrate their realities. A world that preserves a space for each one of us; accommodating our diversities and aspirations.

Currently, Ikhtyar’s programmatic work focuses on organizing, knowledge production and advocacy in the areas of sexual and reproductive health rights, creating a feminist internet, and building feminist personal narratives. Follow them on Facebook @IkthyarforGenderStudies and Twitter @IkhtyarCo for more updates!
