Women have always played important roles in Islamic learning, but their path to scholarship is not without its unique challenges, as Shaykha Tamara Gray and Ustadha Zaynab Ansari discuss.

In part 1 of their conversation on ImanWire, Shaykha Tamara Gray of Rabata and Ustadha Zaynab Ansari of Tayseer Seminary discuss the future of female scholarship, facing misogyny in the community, and how to facilitate more open platforms for feminine voices in the teaching of sacred knowledge. The two scholars consider the role of feminism, the need for gender-equitable spiritual spaces and discourse, and other contemporary issues. Our thanks to ImanWire for this podcast.
