Drafting a New Story: Women's Rights in the Middle East

Submissions Welcome! Please submit your original pieces of non-fiction, fiction, poetry, art, or political analysis.

AIC’s interest in women’s rights goes well beyond the pages of this blog! We’ve been working hard to prepare and launch our publication on women’s rights, titled “A Modern Narrative for Muslim Women in the Middle East.” Now that it has hit the press, we’re inaugurating the publication with events around DC. Several of our writers will make the long journey from the Middle East to Washington, DC to join us for the launch of this publication. They will testify on all they’ve seen and experienced in their daily lives, and in their work as women’s activists. AIC’s own Executive Director Zainab Al-Suwaij will moderate these panels.

We’d like to invite you to join us as our writer-activists take part in AIC-sponsored events around DC!

-On Wednesday, September 29th, join us from 12-2pm for our Capitol Hill panel at the Rayburn Building, room B-338. RSVP with your name and affiliation to

-On Thursday, September 30th, AIC, in partnership with the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars, will host a panel at the Woodrow Wilson Center from 10am-12pm. RSVP with the Wilson Center here.

We look forward to seeing you there!
