Does male dominance of national politics affect everyday life for Muslim women? Should the inauguration of Donald Trump change our sense of personal security? Do our own communities unwittingly promote discrimination?

Two Muslim women — Soraya Deen, a national advocate for interfaith dialogue, and Nadia Najim, a college student raised in Portland — will discuss experiences, concerns, and expectations about their future in a changing and possibly hostile social landscape.
