Women from all walks of life can make meaningful contributions and take on leadership roles no matter what their background or beliefs.
That was the message Wisconsin’s first lady Tonette Walker shared Monday with about two dozen members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Oshkosh at the Qamar Mosque.
The community’s Lajna Ima’illah, or women’s auxiliary, hosted the wife of Gov. Scott Walker as part of a dinner focusing on women’s leadership. The first lady spoke during the event which included a glimpse into the Islamic religion and culture.
Was the first lady segregated from her male companions or were men not permitted to attend?
“It’s so exciting to be up here because when we’re together and we’re talking, we’re just like another mom or woman or someone in a leadership role,” Walker said in an Oshkosh Northwestern Media interview after Monday’s event. “We’re exactly the same. We just come from different backgrounds and have different beliefs, but when we really get down to what’s important — our families and our children and our love for Wisconsin and things around us — it’s just like being with anybody else.
“It’s important for us all to be respectful and to get to know each other and other people and other communities,” Walker said. “It’s humbling to be able to come into a community and listen to them.”
“I’m glad we were able to have so many guests here today,” [Hajra] Ahmad said. “We see the community leaders, but don’t always get to connect with them. Many of the guests here today are women in leadership (positions) in the Oshkosh area, and we hope that when they leave this mosque that they have more knowledge of our community.”
And that sums it all up. It’s not about women or leadership. It’s not about diversity or interfaith harmony. It’s about Islam. Spreading it.
That’s why Wisconsin’s first lady was in the mosque rather than a group taking a civic visit to the statehouse to discuss leadership.
PS: This stealthy minority just got their own caucus on Capitol Hill.
