In the post-9/11 environment, Muslim women's representation is often articulated within a rights discourse owing much to liberal-secular sensibilities—notions of freedom, equality, rational thinking, individualism, and modernization. Based on her book, Muslim Women's Rights: Contesting Liberal-Secular Sensibilities in Canada, Dr. Ruby unpacks the ways these liberal-secular sensibilities inform, shape, and foreclose public discussion on questions of Islam and gender.
