Program Title: WINGS #37-18 The Case for Secularism - FOR WEEK OF DEC 30
Description: An Algerian living in France, Marieme Helie-Lucas argues in favour of secularism and gives global context to the nearly-successful plan to let Sharia courts do binding arbitration in family law cases in Ontario, and the so-called ban on the veil in France. This is an archival program - the audio was recorded in November 2005. The issue is ongoing, however, and if anything increased.
Featured Speakers/Guests: Marieme Helie-Lucas is a founder of Women Living Under Muslim Laws
