Emphasis will be focused on understanding the correct meaning of the verse, with specific attention given to the words qiwamah, nushuz, and daraba as well as to understand how this verse is to be applied as a protection for women, not as an abuse.

Sunday, 4:30-6:00 pm Room 21 Session 11F: Impact Litigation and Muslim: The Next Chapter in America’s Civil Rights History This session will discuss how the American Muslim community can begin to strategically empower the general American community at large by filing federal civil rights lawsuits which will help to protect the constitutional rights in the great historical legacy of civil rights case like Brown v.

Call me nuts, but sessions which implies they are talking about the right way to hit a female and looking to game the court system is a bit gaudy. Via LGF
