 Fauzia E. Ahmed (sociology)—Based on her forthcoming article in the journal Feminist Economics, Ahmed was recently invited by the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) to present her work on Islam, masculinity, and marital quality. She lived in a village to conduct her research, she presented at the panel, “Women’s Empowerment: Post 2015 Policies at the Intersection of Feminist Theology and Feminist Economics”, UNFPA New York, April 2014. In her presentation, Ahmed stressed the need for academics and UN officials to recognize that low-income men and women are also a source of knowledge. Her research findings revealed that their theories about gender equality at home include a definition of marital quality, which involves changing masculinity and specific measures to assess this transformation. Ahmed argued that such theories, which reflect feminist interpretations of Islam, should be included in scholarly debates and gender programs.
