its name is the University of al-Qarawiyyin

the woman’s name was Fatima al-Fihri

failing to mention the names contributes to the erasure of the accomplishments of people, and especially women, of colour throughout history

once again: her name was FATIMA AL-FIHRI

"…and is sometimes referred to as the oldest university, although some scholars dispute whether the term can be properly applied historically to institutions outside the European model” - wikipedia

sounds like white tears

FATIMA AL-FIHRI
FATIMA AL-FIHRI
FATIMA AL-FIHRI

Side-note: the problem with using European terms to describe non-European historical institutions is that, for example, using a term like “king” to describe, say, a Shogun and “knights” to describe his samurai erases the culture and history behind those terms in favour of a eurocentric conception of history and society. 

That said, YEAH it’s a university and it was one long before Europeans decided to call it one. In fact there’s a decent chance institutions like al-Qarawiyyin were what inspired Europeans to set up their own universities in the first place, what with the Muslim world being a massive source of scientific and cultural advancement throughout European history and all.

Also, Fatima Al-Fihri.
