Sharbat Gula, the Unfortunate Afghan Girl
Maria Sartaj

They say wars are necessary to keep the arms industry in production; it wouldn’t be too inappropriate then to comment that the by-products of war, its emotional casualties, benefits media the most. Once considered a noble profession, media has now become an exercise in sheer dishonesty and muting of the conscience. It utilises downtrodden subjects in the same manner as a zookeeper shows off the new additions to his animal kingdom: you can see but not touch. The keys of the cage belong to the publishing house or the news channel that got there first.....

U.S. Policy Prevents Women Who Are Raped By ISIS from Accessing Abortion
Lisa Shannon

Girls and women are responding to the pressing psychological imperative to reject extremists’ claim to their bodies and lives. Girls have already faced the trauma of rape. Adding a pregnancy creates a permanent prison. Congolese “Elodie” who was attacked at fifteen years old recalls, “The day I learned I was pregnant was as terrible as it was when I was raped.”....

Indian Muslim Feminists: We Are Reformists Not Traitors
Mariya Salim

Despite these attacks, we stand firmly by our position that gender-just reforms have to be introduced into the Muslim community, but that they have to come through equality-seeking interpretations of the Quran and Islamic law, not through a universal family law imposed on the community from above....

Hijab and Fashion
Rafia Zakaria

Hijab and Fashion
Rafia Zakaria

Undoubtedly, there are women who choose the Hijab for its disavowal of the politics of consumption, its ability to insulate against the constant moral aspersions cast on women in the Muslim public sphere. New meanings do not mean that the old ones are completely erased; they remain, not on catwalks but on the margins and the sidelines....


Triple Talaq: the AIMPLB’s Statement Goes against the Spirit of Islam
Syeda Hameed

The AIMPLB itself is a house divided. There are several schools within it which forbid one sitting Talaq, such as Ahl-e-Hadith, Fiqah Jafariya, etc. Many individuals within are opposed; this opposition is more evident since the board’s anti-gender, in fact an anti-human affidavit was filed before the Supreme Court. One fact needs flagging: the AIMPLB is an NGO where members are appointed, not elected, though they represent many Fiqhs and states....

The prophet Muhammad would be appalled by how current Islamic Fundamentalists are treating women under their control. This suppression is done in the name of Islamic Law, known as Sharia. But the current suppression of women is shaped by cultural and history. It has little basis in the Quran and it is certainly not consistent with anything we know about what Muhammad taught or how he treated women.....

Of course, couples should take each and every member of the family into consideration before making any decision. Islam recommends the process of mediation to attempt reconciliation before reaching the final decision of divorce. When the decision to divorce has been made, it will affect every member, either positively or negatively, which in turn affects the society in which we live.....

‘I Live in a Lie’: Saudi Women Speak Up
Mona El-Naggar

It’s like I’m in handcuffs, and the society, the law, the people [are] against us. That’s why most women choose to marry in their early 20s as a way to escape, and guess what? The man she marries is no different from her brother or father....

Bina Shah

Now the challenge is convincing the entire society that women are equal citizens under the law whose lives cannot be stolen on the whims of the masculine ego. Pakistan must build a new tradition that combines legal compulsion with quick and immediate punishment, and most important, a strong and robust activism that drives home the value of women’s lives....
