Lette also spoke about the vital role of women’s education today, correcting misconceptions that women’s education was not prioritized or encouraged.

“What we see from our own tradition and our own scripture is the complete opposite,” Lette said. “That there is a label of emphasis and importance on one seeking knowledge and one being educated.”

The event concluded with a Q&A session allowing students to ask questions about being a Muslim woman in co-ed spaces, struggling with hijab, and being without marriage.
