Profesorka fakulteta islamskih studija
Ne sudi Kosovu na osnovu onoga što vidiš na glavnom trgu u Prištini. Idi dalje…u sela. Situacija je zastrašujuća, ali ove žene preživljavaju, bore se. Te priče želim u medijima. Postoje hrišćanke I muslimanke koje nailaze na iste izazove, dele ih i pomažu jedne drugima u podizanju dece I njihovom odgajanju.
Besa Ismaili was born and raised in Mitrovica, but moved to Prishtina after the war. A professor at the Faculty of Islamic Studies at the University of Prishtina, Ismaili dedicates much of her free time to working with women from different religious communities to better the gender-ratio within traditionally male-dominated institutions. Much like in other spheres, Ismaili said that it’s important to have theologically educated women interpreting scripture and sacred text. Ismaili is a feminist, and is a frequent panelist for local media discussions about the role of women in religion and society.
