"I personally heard all the opinions that supported the appointment of the first woman to the role of Qazi, and I also heard its opponents. However, Muslim countries like Jordan, Indonesia and Egypt have already allowed the appointment of women to the role of Qazi."...

Radicalised Women: The ISIS Offers Women Dignity, Purpose, Protection
Huma Yusuf

Research on the so-called ‘brides of IS’ has shown that women are radicalised by the same issues as men: a perception that the Ummah is under attack, frustration over the international community’s indifference to Muslim suffering, a sense of religious duty, the desire to meaningfully contribute to a utopian society, a craving for comradeship.....

While most societies across the globe are becoming more liberal when it comes to gender, not only are Arab countries the most conservative, there is also little evidence of change. Our research, which looks at how political and social attitudes changed after the Arab uprisings in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia, suggests that although women tend to be more progressive, both women and men share conservative attitudes...

All India Muslim Personal Law Board and the Circus around Triple Talaq
Nishat Amber

The ambiguity in the interpretation of civil and criminal laws by clerics is also pretty evident from some of the infamous incidents in the country such as the ‘Imrana rape case’. In the said case, a woman from Uttar Pradesh who was raped by her father-in-law was asked by the local minority community Panchayat to treat her husband as her son. The local Panchayat also termed her marriage to her husband as null and void. The leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom too issued a fatwa supporting the stand taken by the local Panchayat on the issue.....

From Pakistan to Egypt, The Muslim Countries That Have Moved Ahead From Triple Talaq
Radhika Iyengar

.... Talaq al-Bidat emerged during the second century, when Omayyad rulers found that the laws “imposed by the Prophet on the facility of repudiation interfered with indulgence of their caprice and endeavoured to find an escape from the strictness of law.” Ahmad further writes, “It must be noted that it was not Islam, but Omayyad practices that gave validity to these divorces.”....

Justice by Law: Triple Talaq Will Not Be Addressed By Political Rhetoric, Trial By Media Or Social Boycotts
Tahir Mahmood

The argument that triple divorce is Bid’at (repugnant to true Islamic law) but it cannot be legally done away with does not stand to reason. The strange formula of “bad in theology but good in law” associated with triple Talaq — to which the British Indian courts adhered in the distant past — has no legs to stand on in a modern 21st century society which is, or must be, governed by the principles of law, and not theology....

Rigid interpretation of the veil as a metaphor for obscurantism is recent, thanks to Wahhabism and the Salafi movement that obfuscated the free spirit of Islam and misconstrued Quranic teachings. Even Prophet Muhammad never advocated that women must wear a Hijab. Bukhari’s Hadith (compilation of Prophet Muhammad’s teachings) mentions a specific teaching with a story attached. A woman approached Prophet Muhammad and asked whether she should wear a veil after marriage. The Prophet answered that whether married or unmarried, she was not required to hide her face from strangers or male gazers because those determined to gaze at women would continue to gaze, anyway, whether or not one wore a veil. Prophet Muhammad added that the sacredness of an uncovered face is its Hijab.....

 

How Religious Female Soldiers Are Transforming the Israel Defence Forces

Don't fool yourselves, the rabbis were told at that meeting. According to a military source, the rabbis were also told that they were not the ones to come up with the idea of separate barracks and restrooms for men and women in the army. The order has existed in the IDF since day one. The chief of staff promised to enforce this order more vigorously and ensure that there are no exceptions. The rabbis also received an assurance that the army is not being run according to the agenda of feminist organizations, nor does it subject itself to such groups. .....
