About this author

Irshad Manji (born 1968) is a Canadian Muslim feminist, author, journalist, and activist. Manji is Director of the Moral Courage Project at New York University. The Moral Courage Project will teach young leaders to speak truth to power in their own communities. She is a well-known critic of radical Islam and orthodox interpretations of the Qur'an. The New York Times has described her as "Osama bin Laden's worst nightmare". Manji advocates a revival of critical thinking, known as ijtihad in Islamic tradition. To that end, she has launched Project Ijtihad, an international charitable organization dedicated to creating a network of Muslims interested in a liberal reform of Islam.
