Join notable secularists and veteran women's rights campaigners for a conference on Sharia, Segregation and Secularism at a spectacular venue in central London.
The conference will raise key issues surrounding religious arbitration, the veil and gender segregation at schools and universities, including as part of the religious-Right's assault on women's rights. It will also highlight the voices of people on the frontlines of resistance, the gains made by secularists both in the UK and internationally, and the importance of secularism as a minimum precondition for equality. Challenges that secularists continue to face and priorities for continued collective action will also be addressed.
The conference will mark the tenth anniversary of the One Law for All Campaign for equality irrespective of background, beliefs and religions.
Confirmed Speakers: Afsana Lachaux, Ahlam Akram, Amina Lone, Beatrix Campbell, Diana Nammi, Elham Manea, Eve Sacks, Fariborz Pooya, Gina Khan, Gita Sahgal, Houzan Mahmoud, Inna Shevchenko, Marieme Helie Lucas, Maryam Namazie, Nadia El Fani, Nasreen Rehman, Peter Tatchell, Pragna Patel, Rahila Gupta, Rumana Hashem, Sadia Hameed, Victoria Gugenheim and Yasmin Rehman.
