Malaysia: Supporting Women through Interreligious Dialogue

Sisters in Islam (SIS) is a Malaysian feminist NGO. Founded in 1987 by Zainah Anwar, who led the movement for 20 years, this association fights for the rights of Muslim women, in order to remember how Islam has given them their dignity in a context where they were bullied and enslaved. It also promotes gender equality and justice in Malaysia but also worldwide. The SIS group is particularly unique bringing together Sunnis and Shiites.
