Voice of America: Women’s Mosque Fits Within a Larger Context

CRCC Managing Director Brie Loskota explained the context out of which the women’s mosque emerged for a story produced by Voice of America.

Here’s what Loskota said:

“The Women’s Mosque itself is not an isolated event. There have been a lot of critiques of women’s roles and the limited and narrow nature of many of those roles in Muslim institutions for many decades,” she said. “And that has come to a head especially with the Gen X, millennial Muslim women.”

Loskota says the Women’s Mosque is an outgrowth of these critiques and that it bears the hallmarks of the millennial Muslim women who founded it.

“There’s a large focus on inter-religious dialogue,” she said. “There’s a a great focus on pluralism and how you exist in a plural context.  There’s a great focus on diversity.”
