Lila Abu-Lughod joins amicus brief against the Executive Order on the "Muslim Ban"

Lila Abu-Lughod, a director of the CSSD projects Reframing Gendered Violence and Religion and the Global Framing of Gender Violence, joined several scholars in an amicus brief filed with the Supreme Court in the case by Muslim Advocates against the Executive Order on the "Muslim Ban."

Her research in Do Muslim Women Need Saving? supported the argument that invoking "honor killings" in the Executive Order indicates animus toward one religious group.
