MMW Weekly Round up Jan 2009

This week on MMW, we examine whether Iranian poetry prizes are male-dominated, the media’s sexist interest in Libyan bodyguards, discuss the Reviving the Islamic Spirit conference, Sahar Daftary’s death, complain about the BBC’s coverage of Kariman Hamza’s Qur’an translation, look at an interview with Joumana El Matrah about the condition of Australian Muslim women and the coverage of Palestinian women in the present Gaza crisis. And don’t forget The Links.
