As part of its activities, the information center sponsors a coffee hour discussion group every fourth Wednesday of the month from 2 to 4 pm, with invited guests giving a presentation from their area of expertise or experience. The guest for September is Mrs. Amtul M.N. Akhtar, who will be speaking on the theme, The Rights and Status of Women in Islam. Mrs. Amtul chose this theme because she is frequently asked by Japanese questions along the lines of those below:
Mrs. Amtul will deal with these questions plus other topics, such as the economic position of women, the purpose of marriage in Islam, the daily life of a Muslim woman and motherhood.
In this age of internationalization, peoples from all over the world are rubbing shoulders and thus need to overcome prejudices and misunderstandings. This is a good opportunity to learn about the concerns and issues of the many Islamic peoples in the world.
So come and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and some cookies while learning from this month's guest. You are free, of course, to come and go as you please during the meeting.
The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world.

Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
