Employing Women: Economic Empowerment Is a Distant Dream
Anum Malkani

Yes, there is a supply issue: women are not encouraged to pursue careers the way men are. Even those women who are given the right opportunities struggle every step of the way: juggling responsibilities at work while shouldering the burden of housework, child-rearing and elderly care; dealing with a society that labels working mothers as neglectful; and surviving in workplaces that are tailor-made for men....

Teaching Of Gender Equality Sparks Infighting In Iran

Just 12 days before the polls, on May 7, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei criticized Rouhani’s Cabinet for quietly adopting the measure and said, “It is the Islamic Republic here! Here Islam is the benchmark! The Quran is the benchmark! It is not a place where the deficient, destructive and corrupt Western lifestyle can infiltrate! ... The UNESCO 2030 education agenda and the like are not agendas that the Islamic Republic of Iran should have to surrender and submit to.”....

Triple Talaq: Whose Fight Is It Anyway?
Flavia Agnes

This brought me back to the recently concluded triple Talaq hearing and the agency given to Muslim women to include conditions in the Nikahnama (marriage contract) to protect themselves in their marital home — a Quranic right given in the seventh century. And here we were, in the 21st century, still holding on to the notion of a sacramental Hindu marriage solemnised through rituals such as Saptapadi and Kanyadaan....

 

In our work with women in abusive marriages, never have we come across pro-women judgments by Islamic courts. Only if there was a more comprehensive survey that was less selective. For example, if the NALSAR surveyors spoke to Shaheen, the women’s organisation in Hyderabad, they would have learnt that there has only been one Qazi in the city who took a pro-woman position while absolving a marriage last year. Yet, exceptions cannot claim to be the norm....

FGM vs Political Correctness — Which Will Prevail?
Paula Kweskin

At that moment, will women’s rights be asserted or will they be diluted in favour of political correctness? In the past, I’ve witnessed the disintegration of women’s rights in favour of political correctness: my film Honour Diaries was censored (in Michigan, actually) when certain groups deemed it “Islamophobic” for bringing up FGM, forced marriage and honour killings...

Besides the main Shia and Sunni sects, they are also divided along many cross-cutting lines of identities, which prevents the community from having a uniform view on "triple Talaq". There are also nuanced differences in the principle and practices of Shia and the four schools of Sunni jurisprudence, which include Hanafi, Maliki and Hanbali and their sub-sects such as Wahhabi, Ahl-e-Hadith, Deoband, and Barelvi. Then there's the minuscule presence of Ahmadiyas and Sufi sects....

Declare Instant Triple Talaq Invalid
A. Faizur Rahman

Therefore, the only way to restore the legal equality of Muslim women and pre-empt the state’s legislative interference in the Muslim Personal Law is for the AIMPLB to declare instant triple Talaq invalid with immediate effect, and make the Quranic procedure of Talaq gender-neutral. Social boycotts and no-triple-Talaq conditions in Nikahnamas (prenuptial contracts) will not remedy the legal inferiority of women under the prevailing Muslim law....

In other religions where unilateral nature of Talaq does not exist women continue to be exposed to economic deprivation and violence, and hence women’s rights activists have fought to bring in remedies through DV Act, sections like 498A. This legal course of action is available to all women irrespective of religion. Thus by doing away with unilateral Talaq one is not lingering abusive marriages but strengthening the bargaining power of women to fight back the inequality embedded in religious practices.....

Triple Talaq Is an Enormity; It Is a Legacy of a Pre-Islamic Arabia
Arif Mohammad Khan

Triple Talaq is an enormity; it is a legacy of a pre-Islamic Arabia. In so far as it is arbitrary, it robs Muslim women of their fundamental rights. In so far as it is violative of the Quranic procedure, it is anti-Islam. In so far as it treats women as slaves who can be disposed of by the “master” at his sweet will, it is inhumane....
